Does anyone know if certain schools grant deferrals? I have been accepted to a number of med schools, but am thinking about deferring entrance for 1 or more years. I saw a list circulating another posting that listed "Schools with a lot of waitlist movement" and "Schools with little-to-no waitlist movement". Is there a similar list for schools that have been known to grant deferrals to accepted applicants? If so, what are valid reasons that students cite for requesting the deferral? Which of these reasons have worked, and which fail? Are there specific schools that NEVER or RARELY grant deferrals? Why? Is this at all based on whether a particular school is public or private? What about the Ivy medical schools? Any help much appreciated!!
