Deferral

Postby treysongz45 » Thu Jul 07, 2011 6:10 pm

Can you defer enrollment after being accepted early decision?

What is the best way of going about this? email? phone call?

Contact the individual school. Every school has different policies.

Ask them for a deferral, state your reasons. They may not grant it but you can always withdraw even if you ED.

Not sure whether you can take out $200,000 in loans right now.

I'm actually interested in reading a discussion about this, without the ED part.

OP, I'm assuming you can say you'd like to defer for financial reasons.
