Should I mention plans to defer in personal statement?

Should I mention plans to defer in personal statement?

Hello everyone - I desperately need help.

My advisor told me that I should mention "somewhere" that I plan on deferring for a year so that I can teach English in China. Should I mention it in my personal statement? Should I mention it at all? My immediate reaction is why tell them about it so that they can reject me and tell me to apply later.

What do you think?

Thanks!!!

i wouldn't do that.  I would recommend that you apply, then when you're accepted, ask to defer
