I'm not sure about the meaning of this sentence --> you got deferred from Princetown.
My attempt --> L'Université de Princeton t'a mis sur liste d'attente (???)
Thanks for your help everybody.
Votre idée me semble la bonne. Elle est confortée par ce que je viens de lire:
Many students who applied to college Early Decision or Early Action are finding that they've been neither accepted nor rejected, but deferred. If you find yourself in this limbo, here are some guidelines for how to proceed. 1. Don't Panic
Most likely, if you've been deferred your credentials are in the ballpark for getting accepted. If they weren't, you'd be rejected. However, your application wasn't so far above average that the college wanted to give up a spot in the entering class until they could compare you to the full applicant pool. The percentages vary from college to college, but many students do get accepted after being deferred (I was one such applicant).
