I've been accepted at a couple schools for class of 2009, but for family reasons I won't be able to start school this August. The schools I've been accepted to so far are Indiana and the University of Rochester, and I'm waitlisted at Hopkins (which I've heard is very supportive of students deferring for a year, but I'm not holding my breath about getting in there! I think I also have a good chance of getting into Pitt. Has anyone heard anything about these schools' deferral policies? Has anyone deferred, or know anyone who has? Any information would be much appreciated.
