Deferred = waitlist?

Deferred = waitlist?
« on: April 02, 2006, 11:42:10 AM »
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 2....how 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.
