Release of Deferred Decisions: What should I expect?

Hi all! I applied early but got deferred at one of my top schools. Can anyone tell me when deferred decisions generally come out? Is it the same time as regular decision notifications? Any insights would be helpful.

Hi there! Yes, deferred decisions typically come out at the same time as regular decision notifications. When you're deferred during the Early Decision or Early Action process, your application is essentially moved into the Regular Decision pool for further review. This means that you'll be evaluated alongside all the other Regular Decision applicants, and you'll receive your final admission decision on the same date they do.

The exact date of the decision release can vary between schools, but most colleges release their decisions in late March or early April. Be sure to keep a close eye on the specific school's website or communications for updates on the exact decision release date.

In the meantime, it's always a good idea to focus on your other applications, if you haven't already submitted them, and invest in the opportunities available to you at other colleges. It's essential to have backup options and keep an open mind, as college admissions can often be unpredictable. Best of luck to you as you await your results!
