Re: Defer Scholarship to T14?

I've never heard of this happening. Every school (that I'm aware of) has a clause in their deferral agreement that says scholarships are recalculated for the new cycle.

Yes, I deferred my Butler scholarship, and UChicago was going to let me defer a similar amount. Not so for NYU--they said they'd recalculate after readmission.

some schools may let you, as the above poster mentions they were allowed to, but I would not count on the fact that one person was allowed to at, say, Chicago, mean you will also be allowed to at Chicago. Likely a case-by-case situation.

Just speculating here, but I can see the fact that you don't anticipate finishing whatever program you are in in time to start the following cycle being a sticking point for some schools. I mean, if you get invited to interview at Columbia they may be like, oh you just started this MA program, is that a one year program? you'll either lie or say, no, I won't graduate for 2 years, in which case they'll be like...why are you applying for this cycle then? I would assume this will negatively impact your cycle. I invite others to comment on this as well, though. (wouldn't you want to put in your resume when you expect to obtain the MA, thus informing all schools?)

This is encouraging, thanks :)
