I was wondering if anyone out there has ever deferred an acceptance to medical school. I am burned out from undergrad and would like to have some time for clear thinking before I start the next venture. It would be a good time to reaffirm my interest in the field and to take a needed break. I wanted to know if there has been anyone that has done this. Have you been happy that you did, or have learned to regret it?? I have not been able to find many who are considering this or have done it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have been accepted to one medical school already and am on the wait list at a few others. However, I have been rejected from my number one choice. If I am thinking about taking a year off anyways, should I turn down my acceptances to reapply to that school? Thanks for your advice. Some real-life experiences would be a huge help!!!!!! THANKS!!!
