For many early admission applicants, decisions don’t yield a ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ but rather a deferral – meaning their application will be considered again in the regular round.

This year, Harvard deferred 4,822 applicants – about 74% of students who applied in the early round. That’s an especially high number of deferrals compared to other institutions, leaving a lot of students wondering what to do next.

For those who were deferred, here’s what you need to know about the decision and what you can do to improve your chances of admission in the regular round. If you need additional help, contact us today for more information on our deferral consultation.
