What’s a deferred admission?
Applying early action has three possibles outcomes: acceptance, denial, or deferred admission. The admissions office may defer your application if you’re not a candidate for early action. In that case, the admissions panel will reevaluate your application with the regular decision applicants. If you’re a deferred early action, you don’t have to reapply to the school. The admissions office may review the application during the regular admission process.
