You certainly aren't going to make any friends at school A after they considered your app, accepted you, considered your request for deferral, and granted you a deferral then you write them a letter saying never mind, I'm going to attend school B.

I have deferred admission to a T25 until next year but am wanting to accept admission to a school this school year (T25) just to cover my bases in case I decide I want to go to law school. Can someone do this? Is this ethical? Should I forget this plan?
I am going against the CW on this one. As long as you are not lying or deceiving either school in any way, then I say it's probably OK. Does the deferral have any conditions on it? Schools understand people weigh their options and often deposit at multiple institutions. If your reasons for a deferral were legit (and remain legit), and you haven't misrepresented the situation to the other school, then I am not sure why there would be an ethical issue.

I am not too familiar with the conditions of a deferral. I thought it was essentially an acceptance, but you are saying you will attend next year. In this case, you cannot ignore that. If it is an agreement whereby you are only "accepted" for next year, then I guess you could go ahead and accept for this year. It is still kind of a dick move, seeing as they have to discuss whether or not to give you a deferral.
