what about u???</p>

<p>For accepted early decision candidates, you will receive your MMSS decision letter by Feb.1st. (Update: Decisions will be emailed by Feb. 8th. We apologize for the delay.)</p>

<p>Are you kidding me right now..</p>

<p>OMG,,,,we still have to wait for abt a week,,,,T T</p>

<p>I was deferred to RD T T
how abt u??</p>

<p>same here...</p>

<p>I was deferred too. Do we know how many or what % they usually accept early?</p>

<p>Sam Lee, Viviste, Pizzagirl help us out.</p>

<p>From what I know, the application pool was very small yet self-selective in earlier years for MMSS.</p>

<p>But recently, interest in MMSS and awareness of the program has skyrocketed. More and more qualified applicants are applying more than ever before.</p>

<p>I wouldn't be surprised if the acceptance rate drops a little if not by a lot this year.</p>

<p>As for your deferrals, I wouldn't worry too much because its probably a gimmick they play off to wait for more applicants and to review the entire pool as a whole before handing out the spots hastily.</p>

<p>After all, there are only 20-30 (correct me if i'm wrong) spots in the MMSS freshman admission round.</p>

<p>I presume they only accept those "slam-dunk" candidates with stellar math scores/grades/classes/ability in the early admission round.</p>

<p>But if your math is pretty strong and it is reflected in your application, I would not worry.</p>

<p>One of my friend got admitted...><</p>

<p>Obviously I can't speak for the admissions committee, but I believe lienad is on the exact right path. </p>

<p>You should probably treat your deferrals as legitimate deferrals and not as polite rejections. </p>

<p>As an MMSS student, I've been able to see the kind of attention we get - even relative to econ majors here at NU - and it doesn't surprise me that (1) more and more applicants of a superb caliber realize the value the program and (2) more and more recruiters head in for that student base. These two things have been playing off of each other for a bunch of years now and the program is changing because of it - and the results have been resulting in a more competitive Freshmen application. It can't hurt that the previous MMSS director, Dale Mortensen, won a Nobel in Economics last year.</p>

<p>I would go as far to say that MMSS has been consistently receiving a greater amount of applications than the admissions committee has anticipated for a couple of years in a row - results of (1) and (2) - and they're more likely to defer so that they can better understand the landscape from which they're sending out acceptances.</p>

<p>It's a small class size, and - like any sufficiently large early action pool for a small number of seats - deferring allows for better ability to mold an incoming class, and I think that holds particularly true when the landscape has been changing as drastically as it is.</p>
