Has anyone been rejected or deferred yet?

My D has not gotten a letter yet so I'm wondering if maybe only acceptances go out first. Please if anyone has gotten other responses let me know. Thanks!

    I haven't heard of anyone getting rejected or deferred. But that could just be because they don't want to tell people. ???

    Deferred, but UMass was my son's safety and he has gotten into every other school with merit, so it was kind of weird, but he does not care. All but one a higher ranked than UMass.

    Skinny letter arrived today.

    I was deferred today.
    3.0 out of 4. Junior and senior year grades have been 3.3+
    1620 sat
    45 hours of Community service
    Captain of Varsity tennis for 3 years
    Graphics design editor of school newspaper for 2 years
    Killer essay about a life changing event in my life
    Had a job during the summer.

    I think I forgot to mention my Community service and they will get my senior year grades.
    :/

    i was deferred yesterday and i have a 3.3 GPA and 1070 SAT.. i was very surprised because students in my school got accepted which much lower grades, UMASS was my least favorite school of my 7 anyway

    I am an UMASS alum, as is my wife, and have been active with the Economics Department for 18 years. My son did get EA acceptance with 4.0 weighted GPA and 1990 SAT's, plus service learning and varsity sports, if that is useful to anyone reading this, as a parameter.

    My sense is that students from MASS who may end up in Ivies or MIT type schools also apply to UMASS, so don't give up that deferral means rejection.

    One further thought, for UMASS, or any large school. The secret is making big schools small - by finding clubs, activities, frats/sororities, or something else where folks know you. UMASS has 1000 of those opportunities. Literally.
