Many applicants were deferred from this year's early admissions. At the NACAC annual conference two years ago, the University of Michigan Senior Associate Director of Admissions addressed the issue of early action and the increasing loads of early applications from the students.
But over the last few years, we can see Michigan's admissions putting the brakes on and slowing down the process of early admissions.
There are many complaints posted on professional message boards and calls that went into the Michigan admissions office when the students and counselors saw the impact of the change in policy on early admissions. Counselors can continue to expect to see several thousand students deferred to regular decision due to the over-enrolling every year. In addition to reducing the number of students admitted early, the director mentioned that Michigan would be making greater use of wait lists to control the flow of admitted students and to get a handle on the class size.
There are many other universities finding themselves in similar situations, so for the thousands of applicants deferred because of the institution's over-enrollment problem, be prepared for a long ride into June.
