    Also deferred and interviewed 3/8. Maybe they are waiting to see what happens after the 30th. Who knows

    That's what I think too. I'm guessing Drexel isn't the top choice for a lot of people who are already holding seats in the class. Those students are waiting to hear back from other schools but are keeping their seat at Drexel as a safety. Even after April 30, people can hold seats but they'll lose their deposit ($100 is not a lot so I can imagine many students do this). If you look at the difference in MCAT scores from Accepted Students to Matriculated Students, there is a sizeable drop (I think like 3 points, with a big shift in the distribution of scores as well). This is because those students with higher stats are giving up their seats when they get other offers and the students from the deferred group/waitlist, with lower stats, take those seats and end up matriculating. I'm staying hopeful knowing that there is a lot of movement for this school in particular.

    tl;dr - Hold on, the dawn is approaching...

    Who knows? Maybe they are also reviewing people for a few more days. Deferral basically means that they wanted to put us up against everyone, right?

    Maybe they have X number of seats to give out and they wanted to compare all of March dates like a kind of non rolling type thing. Especially since people had to rearrange and cancel due to storms and weather.

    My deferred email said that deferred =/=WL FWIW. Is it worth it to send them a letter before traffic day?

    Yeah I never got the pre-hold email or any email from Drexel since I submitted my app in early August. To be honest, I thought my app was either dropped on the floor somewhere left forgotten, went straight to their Spam folder, or was feed to the Dragon mascot. :rofl:

    So those days that Drexel closed, they extended the interview dates to late April which now makes sense as to why they deferred people. Gunna be matched up to the the last few applicants for the handful of spots left.

    Does anyone know when they’ll be sending information on when school starts/registering for classes?

    Did you just withdraw your application from the secondary application / interview portal? Or did you e-mail admissions? I tried to withdraw my application from the secondary link but an error keeps showing up

    I was able to withdraw from the secondary portal. But if that’s not working for you, I would email them :)

    How often does Drexel send out acceptances/ rejections in a month? Will there be any more contact before April 30?
