Also according to ClearAdmit Wiki, CBS is considering deferred ED people on a weekly basis rather than by Feb 1st (although that could be the end date). My "waitlist manager" confirmed the same via email.

Let's be civil here. I think your contact in that phone call probably gave you incorrect information.

Although an odd question, but did any male deferred ED applicant get off the list? :P

I didn’t mean to be rude, but it just seams very odd that from what looks to be a quite large ED referral list, only 3 have been accepted so far (with only 7 working days left).

But anyway, if that is the case, then I’m not sure why this guy from the admin office would give me false info. That’s just wrong.

hmm yes, interesting observation. although given the reason we were all deferred in the first place was to get a better sense of the applicant pool to address how we fit in demographically, not that surprising. makes sense though that they would look first to fill slots based on things like gender, international, ethnic etc. before moving on to add diversity to the class by industry, work experience, profession etc.

this is all rampant speculation. but i just feel like on feb 1st, most of us will prob just asked to be on the official waitlist. this may be some type of freudian thing tho where i now associate cbs with "waitlist" haha. but we've come this far right guys, cant give up hope now...

Tomorrow is Friday. I predict that some of us will get some news in the next 24 hours.

Let's hope that isn't true! I think that would be a particularly harsh way to treat a group of candidates who demonstrated such a strong commitment to the school. I'm already a bit unimpressed that CBS thinks it is appropriate to defer early decision applicants - there's nothing "early" about making applicants wait in excess of five months for a decision (especially when so many RD applicants are receiving offers), and I'd be pretty upset if I was asked to keep waiting at this stage in the process.

I totally agree with you!

I think it is not right to keep people waiting for so long. I guess it is all because of the rolling admission method...

I'd take a waitlist over the ding, even though the wait will be agonizing. There's a reason why some chose to apply ED to CBS like me.

Hey, no worries. There's other apps in the pipeline, and to have made it this far I think is a pretty decent accomplishment. Kudos to all of you guys!
