is it possible to get accepted to a school, deffer, and meanwhile try reapplying to another school? reason i ask: i am now applying to NYCOM, a DO school. i am thinking of also studying for the april MCAT and seing if i can do better. if i can, and G-d willing can get an acceptance, i was thinking of deffering and reapplying to my state, allopathic school. before the DO-MD flame war starts, it is not because i don't want to go to a DO school, i could care less MD or DO. BUT: SUNY is cheap, and my husband wouldn't have to move. since i am planning to have child, this is significant. anyway, wondering if all of this is legal. thanx pals. p.s came to school today to study for biochem all day for my test tomorrow, but have been on SDN all day. can i blame a bad grade on SDN?
