Bad Sign If School Pushes Back Admissions Deadline?

Does anyone think it is a bad sign if a school suddenly pushes back its admission deadline after the original deadline already passed? I'm thinking it likely means they didn't get enough quality applicants or they are just running really behind schedule. Would you be weary of a school that does this?

It not necessarily a bad sign. I recently finished a nursing program that pushed back its admissions deadline twice. The program was not bad; it was just that not many people knew about the program, so they pushed back the admission deadline (It worked in my favor so no complaints :))

If you are still concerned, ask for their graduation rate and how they grade their students (for instance - what is a passing grading? A "C" or a "B" and what is a C or a B number wise?)
