Will you get deferred if ...

<p>Today someone told me that some schools will automatically defer you if you apply early, and you have not completed their requirements. For example, Cornell requires a unit in physics for their engineering college. Someone told me if you take physics senior year and you apply early, you will get automatically deferred because you haven't received a first semester grade yet.</p>

<p>Is this true?</p>

<p>I know a kid who got into Cornell ED while taking physics, so I don't think that it is necessarily true.</p>
