A few weeks ago, a long-standing health condition flared up and my physician recommended that I ask for a deferral and take the year off. I had already taken two years to conduct research, but was concerned that I would not make it through the year and did not want to blow what I have been working to accomplish for so long. I received my deferral; however, last week, another physician suggested that my health situation was far better than previously noted. I asked my father if he believes that I could call and ask if any spots have become available for this year's incoming class. He suggests that even if such a thing was possible, the red flags that this vacillation would raise would lose me a spot in any class. Anyone have any input on the situation or advice? Would it look extremely flaky to ask the admissions' office or is it worthwhile to call just to know that I could have the chance?
