    Here's the link to the BDH story: http://www.browndailyherald.com/2016/03/31/brown-admits-2250-to-class-of-2020/

    Wow. I've never seen any numbers about what happens to deferred students in 30+ years of interviewing. Jim Miller must feel like he can tell all now that he's leaving.

    The regular decision admit rate was 7% -- same as the admit rate of deferred students. It's what admissions has been saying for years.

    We interviewers don't learn admissions results for another few days. I can't wait to find out! (Be nice, accepted students, and send an email to your interviewer with the news.)
