What happen if my application for college receive a letter saying that my application was Deferral?
This means you’ve neither been accepted nor rejected. Unlike a denial, a deferral offers hope and chance. You’re being considered as a regular applicant because the admissions committee wants to compare your application to the greater pool of applicants. If you want to improve your chances of turning the ‘maybe’ into a ‘yes,’ you need to do some work.
Here are some suggestions:
- Don’t panic or despair. There was a reason you weren’t rejected straightaway.
- Get information. Contact the admissions office and see if you can find out why you were deferred.
- Send in improved standardized test scores.
- Send in your midyear grades if the college asks for them. Make sure you meet their deadline.
- Write a letter. Sincerely express your continued interest in the school and reasons why you believe it would be a good match for you.
- Send in strong and relevant additional recommendations.
