Deferred admissions?

So I received a letter from WVU today. It says:

"...Those who met with you were quite pleased to have you come to our school for an interview. However, it is not possible for us to make a final decision on your application at the present time. This action will be deferred pending our receipt of the items listed below:"

They list that they need transcripts showing completions of organic and physics (I'll will finish both next semester). They also have requested additional LOR's after telling me that I didn't need them before. And finally they want documentation of my shadowing hours since I told them during my interview that I was shadowing for my capstone next semester.

They go on to say that once all the info is received the committee will complete its evaluation and notify me regarding my application status.


Is this basically just a way of saying that I'll be accepted once I'm met all of their demands? Or is this pretty much a death sentence? I just really don't know if I should feel good or bad about this letter? :confused:

i don't think they would have you go through all the trouble and go through all the trouble themselves if they weren't seriously considering you. i bet if you meet all their demands you have a decent shot.

Yea I'm instate. They mailed out the letters yesterday if you're application was complete.


I know it's good that I haven't been rejected, but if they wait til this summer to admit me thats gonna suck trying to switch over financial aid and getting an apartment and everything else in such a short time period. Oh well, I've waited for a long time already, 6 more months won't hurt i suppose.
