    I just received my acceptance to medical school! Yay! I am ecstatic to have the application process over with and to actually have an acceptance in hand. However, I have a 17 month old son and I am thinking of deferring if possible for one more year. I would then start when he was three. Does anyone have any ideas about this? I stay home with him now and have been able to stay home with him since he was born. I know I will cherish these years when I am a doctor and I wonder if I will miss out on the one more year I could have had with him. On the other hand I am anxious to get started and my husband is anxious for me to start as well. Thanks for any comments.


    I think it is certainly worth asking the school if that is an acceptable reason for deferrment. If they’ll let you, I’d go for it.

    Good luck!
