College admissions officers like Early Decision. The more students they admit through Early Decision, the faster they fill their class..
The odds favor the well-qualified students who apply Early Decision at many schools,. But some are denied, others are placed in limbo and deferred.
If you are dealing with a deferred status what can you do?
I have read comments from education writers and admissions experts that state that a deferred applicant’s chances of getting accepted are less than they were under Early Decision.I believe this to a point. If you were expecting merit-based or need-based aid or ranked in the lower half of the pool, your chances are probably not as great. If your grades and test scores were competitive, you needed no financial aid or had a “hook,” then you should not give up hope.
