Deferred from St. Olaf

raj_shrestha 5 Rep.

I had applied ED2 to St. Olaf College but I recently received an email saying that I was deferred. Should that be good news or bad news for me since I’ve read online that a deferral is an almost rejection. Or, did they defer me to consider me with rest of the Nepali applicant pool?

Should I send in any supplemental articles likes essays to boost my chances? Should I send a letter saying that I am still interested?

Is there any Nepali at St. Olaf who was deferred but then, accepted?

 

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hey, looking at cc I think a student has already been admitted to St Olaf. There might be less chances for deferred students to get in. However, I have heard some stories before that students have got in even after their deferred decision. Be optimistic but also set aside other plans.

    Harsh truth, brother. Although its as good as a rejection, do not lose hope entirely. Just send them a note stating that you’re still interested and how you have been improving (if so) during the application season.

    I personally do not know of such candidates. But I do know that last year tons of Nepalese applicants were deferred, and I am pretty sure none of those got in.

    Note: Try NOT to send an essay unless it really highlights your recent achievements – recent meaning after you sent the application to St Olaf.
