Hi people,
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.

    I'm not certain, but I'd expect it to mean something like admission/entrée reportée à plus tard, par exemple si l'étudiant fera un an d'études à l'étranger avant de commencer ses études à Princeton ?

    Edit: la décision à été reportée par l'université, c'est à dire qu'ils ne se prononcent pas à ce moment, donc l'étudiant doit continuer à attendre.

    Bonjour Frances,
    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).

    Kelly B et petit1 merci beaucoup. C'est ce que je pensais mais c'est toujours rassurant d'avoir d'autres avis. Many thanks, both of you :)
