    Hard to say. Case gets a lot of Asian students, Tulane not so many. That could be part of it. I wouldn't sweat it, what will be will be. You are in a great school already, probably more to come. If Case really is your dream school, let them know that. Otherwise just wait and see.

    Alright. Thanks!
    When I re-apply, do I have to go through the exact same process all over again?
    Playing the app fee and sending the scores,etc?

    I don't understand what you mean about re-applying. You are deferred, so they will consider you in their RD pool. There is no re-applying involved. Do you mean you might go somewhere else and transfer?
