A lot of my fellow deferred comrades are upset about being deferred. I have never felt so bad about it. I wrote about being raped in my additional information section, in an extremely heartfelt way. I know I shouldn't take it personally but it feels personal. I really feel like elite schools are avoiding "flight risk" students, and that really disappoints me. Students who've had horrible experiences shouldn't be punished for being honest.
(I was admitted to a university quite a bit more prestigious than Brown EA (I didn't submit that information there, and reviewing my apps and comparing, I am 100% sure that this was the reason)
