Early action, early decision, and priority admissions decisions have already started coming in, and many more will be released throughout December and into January and February. Many students applying under these plans will get a non-response in the form of a deferral, which is neither a denial nor an acceptance. Instead, it’s an invitation to wait a bit longer to find out if they are in or out. We’ll be sharing everything you need to know if you are one of those receiving a deferral decision.  We also have advice about what you need to do to maintain your scholarship and financial aid dollars each year of college. And finally, Office Hours covers supplemental essays for Elon and the University of Miami in Florida.
