    I will be applying this summer for entrance in 2008. I'm also in the Air Force right now (Lt) but may be getting out early because they are trying to get rid of people in my career field. Anyways, if and when i get accepted this summer but am not able to get out early i will have another year to serve then enter medical school in 2009.

    I've read that schools do offer deferments, but from what it looks like most of these are to finish academic degrees. In my situation would a deferment be considered?

    Sounds like a very reasonable request for deferment, I don't think it would be something impossible to overcome.

    I think that even those schools that do not offer deferment would permit it if you are required to complete your military obligation.
