Deferred = waitlist?

Deferred = waitlist?

I used to think that when an application was deferred, the adcoms just wanted to hold your file for a little longer till they get a picture of the applicant pool. However my girlfriend recieved a deferred decision from a school like 2 weeks ago (she applied in mid december) which doesnt make a whole lot of sense considering it is now April much more could the applicant pool change? Are deferred applications essentially waitlists?

They say being deferred is better than being waitlisted.  I looked this up in previous threads, it has been discussed in multiple posts..

Deferred definitely does not mean waitlist.  See my Harvard acceptance on LSN.
