Deferring Grad School?

Post by hiwasaki » Thu Feb 06, 2020 5:48 pm

TLDR: Has anyone successfully deferred admission to grad school? and if so how did you do it?

Background:
I am a double major in math and physics, and I will be attending a one-year Master's program in Physics next fall (applied in fall 2019). I also applied to math PhD programs (applied in fall 2019) and got some offers. My hope is to have the PhD offer deferred so that I can go to the one-year program and then come back.
Ive read in some schools' policies that they accept under "academic-related circumstances." Do you think going to a physics program is an appropriate reason for deferring a math PhD program? Also, who should I consult this to first (during open house)?

I know someone who did...you just ask anyone and if they're not the person they will send you to the people in charge of such things...you can even do so through email.
