    Deferring a Year

    Deferring for multiple years

    Hi, Does anyone know if it’s possible/happens (I’m sure it depends on the school) to defer for 4+ years. I’m dabbling with the possibility of trying to pursue professional athletics after I graduate but I’ve already taken the Mcat and gotten everything else (letters of rec and such) in order to...

I would rather take a gap year and reapply than attend School X this fall. Provided that I'm able to defer my admission for...

    Federal Subsidized Ungrad Loans

    Hey, If I get into Dental School, I will defer all of my Undergrad loans. Will my subsidized loans gain interest during school deferment? Or are these loans just subsidized for my Undergrad career? Sorry if this a dumb question. My financial consoler at school is booked for a week, and the...
