If I defer, must I go?
« on: July 14, 2009, 06:46:49 PM »
I have an offer from a school, but they require me to be there in 1 week! So I think I am going to wait a year. If I defer until 2010, but also apply to others schools for 2010, and get accepted to a better school, must I go to the school I originally deferred?

Depends. Some schools say that it's a binding deferral and at others, it's not. Look at your deferral paperwork.

it says i have to request a deferral in writing, upon doing so, the admissions committee will reassess my file during the following admissions cycle. How is this a deferral, if I will be weighed against new parameters and applicants?

That is not a real deferral. A real deferral is where you pay a deposit and they hold your seat for you until the next year.

That's what I thought!
