Admitted Student Admission Deferral Question

Postby Madcow1369 » Wed Mar 10, 2010 10:03 pm

I really appreciate you taking the time to answer questions. I am an admitted student with Emory as my top choice. I look forward to seeing the school at admitted students day in April. I have a quick question. An unexpected opportunity has recently come up for me to spend a year working abroad. This opportunity only arose about a month ago, and it is something I am quite interested in. Two questions: What is Emory's policy on an admitted student deferring admission for a year, and if a student defers admission for a year, will merit scholarship money awarded for this year carry over if the admitted student is granted a deferral?

Thanks again for answering questions!

You should check Emory's website and then give them a phone call, right?

I deferred at WUSTL last year to teach abroad. Schools vary on what qualifies for a deferred year of admission, so call and find out what Emory's policy is. Also, I did have to forfeit my scholarship to do it, but I received a much larger one this cycle. However, every situation is different. Good luck.
