Deferred-does it mean rejected?

<p>I know that many people get defered. but, what are the chances that they will get accepted? i dont hear many ppl get accepted after they’re defered</p>

<p>depends on the college</p>

<p>For most of the Ivies about 10-15% of deferred applicants are later accepted.</p>

<p>wat about penn..?</p>

<p>10-15. +++ Dude, chill out. I notice that you are way too stressed. CHILL.</p>

<p>I still don't know if being deferred from M&T or Hunstman means that you were strong enough for your second choice...
Or does it just mean you are deferred from both options???</p>

<p>It is so confusing.</p>

<p>On one hand, if could mean that they think you are strong enough to be, for ex, deferred from the Jerome Fisher Program and will have a good shot at Wharton in the RD round, or it could just mean they deferred you from both but will nevertheless look at your application for both choices again just for the heck of it in the spring.</p>

<p>If you were deferred from a joint-progream, then you were deferred from the single school as well. Sorry. :(</p>

<p>does that mean if you don't get into the joint degree program, you could still get into just wharton or just seas?</p>

<p>Yea. If you apply ED, you can apply to the joint-degree, and check Wharton/SEAS/CAS as your second choice. They'll consider you for that school if you do not get in the Joint-degree. However, if they deferred you, it means that the second choice deferred you, too. During RD rounds, same deal, however, no deferrals...because...well...because it's RD.</p>

<p>It depends on the school. For Ivies, it's pretty hard since the second wave of applicants are usually stronger than the first. However it varies from school to school. One of my friends with mediocre stats got deferred at the U. of Chicago but was later accepted under the RD.</p>

<p>does applying to the joint-degree program affect your chances at your second choice program? since its "second choice"</p>

<p>No. During the Joint degree admission committees, both schools under the joint degree program will review your app, along with the director of the program you are applying to. Normally, if they decide that you don't exactly fit in the joint degree program, the second choice (the single school: Wharton, SEAS, CAS) will either take you/defer you/deny you/waitlist you on the spot. I don't think it's a matter of "second-choice"'s just that it would be way cooler if you can get in a joint-degree, and if you are not admitted into the joint degree, it doesn't affect your chances at the single school at all, the most it can do is to help your chances (at least this is what I think).</p>

<p>I dunno, they said they didn't have a "separate" committee.
I quote from the Penn app:
Because of the selective nature of Penn’s joint-degree programs, many students who apply Early Decision will be deferred. If you are deferred to
Regular Decision, we will first consider your application to the joint program. If we are unable to admit you to that program, we will then consider
you as an applicant to the single-degree program that you have indicated. Only freshmen may apply to these programs."</p>

<p>I know for huntsman at least, the normal admissions committee reads all the huntsman apps and sends the ones that are at least possibilities to the huntsman people. Then the huntsman admissions people decide who to admit for the program.</p>

<p>I hope I get a shot...</p>

<p>Only way for me to go to school in the States is any Ivy.</p>

<p>It isn't that I'm cocky or anything, but other schools don't give out aid.</p>

<p>Catch-22: Are you in the huntsman or m&t program</p>
