Harvard
Michigan (you can apply deferred admission)

I imagine most schools would let you defer as long as you have a legitimate reason.

Thanks. Just wanted to compile a list, because at least one of my schools has a stated policy (USF) that you can't defer for any reason whatsoever.

NYU also has a policy that you can't defer for any reason.

Chicago allows deferrals as long as you are approved by them to have a legitimate reason for doing so.

Also for Michigan, they want you to apply for deferral with your initial application. They write that "Deferral requests made after a regular offer of admission will be considered but may be difficult to grant."
