Do you think a deferred applicant's LOI is actually considered? I am not even sure what I can add to my application at this point. Kinda sucks we weren't good enough to be accepted immediately and have been pushed to the side until further notice.

Does anyone know what the second look is going to be like? From the email, it feels like a 1 hour reception...

According to last year's application thread, you had the option to choose tours and what not, but the main thing was the reception in the late afternoon. So yes, it would seem like it is indeed just a reception. Maybe a current student can shed some light on this!

Any chance anyone knows when the committee meets (like what days/when’s next)? I wanna submit an update before then.

I called the admissions office and they said it’s fine to submit updates and they will take letters of intent into consideration as well.

Unrelated to admissions, are any of my fellow deferred applicants still getting the monthly Tufts medicine magazine? I got another one recently lol

Have there been any waitlists or just deferrals? Trying to understand what the deferral really means in this process...
Deferral is the basically the same thing as waitlist. They probably use the word deferred because they will select few from the deferred list prior to traffic day and then the rest will be waitlisted, meaning their apps wont be considered for admission till probably after traffic day. Just my assumption

I know a few people have asked, but no one knows the date of the March meeting right?

Actual WL sadly
I actually think that's not the worst news? It seems that if you're deferred, you either get rejected or put on the waitlist after traffic day. Being on the regular waitlist may be the better option. Just speculation of course.

Where my Maine Track deferred peeps at? Think we will hear before April?

(interviewed Oct, deferred since Nov)
Same- interviewed in Oct, deferred in Nov, and no answer since. I didn't expect to hear back for awhile but I am kind of bitter that I had to fill that financial aid information out for potentially nothing lol

Also, I forgot, I called admissions office 2 days ago about Deferment stuff and they said that we (about deferment) should have word one way or the other by the first week of May.
