UNCW -How long before you get a decision?

My daughter applied via common app. 1/8 UNCW said app. was in review. My question is do they send decision letters out immediately or wait til you should hear by date on website

my daughter applied on 11/1/19 and she received a notice on her portal on 12/12/19 with a decision. She was deferred but it sounds like quite a few kids were deferred on early admission. Wishing your daughter the best.
