That sucks  :(

I think it's pretty obvious that there are a ton more deferrals this year than there were last year

My hope is that his stock rises soon in your book, after experiencing his irresistible telephone charm.

What I don't get is why are they sending deferrals to people who werent called - why say anything at all? It's not as though there is an early action option.

wow.  this is bad news.  i literally just came on to see if any of my fellow call receivers had heard anything yet, and this is exactly what I didn't wan't to hear.  i guess i should go check my mailbox.

There are a lot more deferrals this year than last, I can clearly see this.  Perhaps I am too optimistic, but I don't think it's necessarily bad news.

i agree.  if decisions are not "due" until April, why send a deferral in January?

i think we are next.  i am really surprised that she was deferred.  annabel talked to him the day before i did, so i dread going home now.  i wish he really had asked me things to "make a stronger case."  now i just feel like i was given false hope by the phone call.

 :'( I still think that if you got a call, you HAVE to be better off than those who didn't get one.
