After you turn in your application for early decision you are accepted, denied or defered. When you are defered you have to wait tell march to here from that school so you application status is pending. Basically its there as cruel and unusual punishment. As your friends get in your application continues to say Pending. When you are supposed to here sometime in march and its the 21 and you havent heard pending becomes the worst word in the dictionary.
Your application status: Pending
It's pending on whether or not im gonna get pissed for waiting so long.
Q. What is the first thing you think when you here the word pending?
John: success!!! i finally got the first layer of the rubiks cube done
BOB: nice, those things frustrate me almost as much as the word pending
