Some schools want to see very specific information in a request (plans for what you will be doing, etc). Call and ask what their decision criteria are.

No idea. By this point in the cycle, a person has likely already paid a deposit anyway, because otherwise they would have given up their spot in the class.
I had to pay a deposit even though I asked for my deferral 4 months before the seat deposit deadline, and I really don't understand why. If I hadn't been granted the deferral, I would have been out $750, because I wasn't going to matriculate last year. I can see requiring a deposit immediately upon approval of the request, but why before?
