    I just got into Creighton, can you defer a year once you've been accepted? Or is that frowned upon?

    you usually would need a very legitimate reason, for instance family issues, year off for research, not ready emotionally/financially, etc. more often than not, it requires a statement in writing or a meeting with admissions people.
    good luck.
