Deferred to regular admission

I was deferred from EA. They emailed me saying they wanted to see my first semester grades. Anyone else have this happen?

Due to health and personal reasons my grades aren’t stellar but just below the median. My SAT’s are within the median, and I sent them, but I don’t know if they’re considered. I did get straight A’ s first semester and also sent them a “deferral letter” explaining my past challenges so I’m hoping that will push the decision in my favor.

Any insight would be really helpful. Right now this is my number 1. Thanks!
