Is it true that colleges are not deferring enrollments this year?
A few weeks ago, a boy in my class told me that the reason he could not attend Rice, NYU, Carnegie Mellon and University of Chicago was because no colleges this year ( the ones he applied to as listed above) were allowing students to defer enrollment for a year and because of 'health' reasons, he could not attend the universities mentioned. Is this true or is he just lying to me?
The reason I am asking this is because the guy was really obnoxious about it and I feel like he was lying just to make me feel worse. Is there any truth to this? He says the only reason he is going to CSU Long Beach is because of health reasons and because his colleges are not deferring enrollments.
