<p>Daughter was recently deferred. She is Hispanic, 28 ACT, 3.68W GPA; 3.5UW GPA. OOS at one of the higher ranked public schools in Illinois. School does not rank. Good grade trends... had just slightly over a 3 GPA freshman year, just shy of 4.0 for soph through 1st semester of senior year. Typical extra-c's, swam fresh-soph, varsity CX junior senior, violin for 7 years.</p>
<p>Part of the deferral letter read as follows:</p>
<p>"After a thorough review of your application for admission to the University of WisconsinMadison, the Committee on Admissions is unable to make a final decision on your file and has postponed your application. As part of our continued review of your application, you will be considered for admission through the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) in the College of Letters and Science.
CAE offers specialized academic advising, academic workshops, free tutoring and involvement in high-impact learning opportunities. To ensure your continued academic success CAE will help your transition from high school to the university. This assistance begins at Student Orientation Advising and Registration (SOAR) which takes place the summer before your fall semester. Some students will also be selected to participate in a summer bridge experience."</p>
<p>Does anybody know exactly what this means? Is she more likely to be accepted through CAE? Is she likely to be accepted after being deferred? Can she still do her intended major...food science/pre med through this program?</p>
