I recently got accepted to medical college yesterday and class literally starts in 3 days (June 16! Eurgh). I was on the waitlist for a long long time. Unfortunately I'm in the middle of a ALOT of things at the moment, ranging from personal, spiritual and academic and I don't think I want to start med school at the moment without fulfilling these obligations. Plus, I know I can do A LOT better than a 27 this year if I retake the MCATs. NOW MY QUESTION: I was wondering if anyone knew if universities typically allow you to withhold your application for 1 year and reserve a seat for the following class (class of 2009). Or is this option only given to people that automatically get accepted instead of being on the waitlist for 99% of the summer. I'd personally ask them, but I just want to know if anyone here knows before I trouble them. Thanks for reading.
