Has anyone been rejected or deferred yet?

My D has not gotten a letter yet so I'm wondering if maybe only acceptances go out first. Please if anyone has gotten other responses let me know. Thanks!

    I haven't heard of anyone getting rejected or deferred. But that could just be because they don't want to tell people. ???

    Deferred, but UMass was my son's safety and he has gotten into every other school with merit, so it was kind of weird, but he does not care. All but one a higher ranked than UMass.

    Skinny letter arrived today.

    Accepted to Binghamton

  • cjsantacjsanta Registered User Posts: 17 New Member
    i was deferred yesterday and i have a 3.3 GPA and 1070 SAT.. i was very surprised because students in my school got accepted which much lower grades, UMASS was my least favorite school of my 7 anyway
  • names1names1 Registered User Posts: 55 Junior Member
    Well I started this thread so I felt that you all deserved to know that my D was deferred. cjsanta her stats were almost exactly the same as yours.

    So sorry to hear about your daughters deferment. I am also nervous now- my daughters stats are very close to your daughters. We applied reg decision-I don't know if that's better or not. The waiting is starting to get to us!

    I am an UMASS alum, as is my wife, and have been active with the Economics Department for 18 years. My son did get EA acceptance with 4.0 weighted GPA and 1990 SAT's, plus service learning and varsity sports, if that is useful to anyone reading this, as a parameter.

    My sense is that students from MASS who may end up in Ivies or MIT type schools also apply to UMASS, so don't give up that deferral means rejection.

    One further thought, for UMASS, or any large school. The secret is making big schools small - by finding clubs, activities, frats/sororities, or something else where folks know you. UMASS has 1000 of those opportunities. Literally.
