Just cancelled my admission to UIC. Guess I won't be going to grad school in Fall 2020. My exams are in Sept. due to COVID while UIC's program start in August. They can't admit me without my degree in advance.
I'm sorry to hear that. Couldn't you defer your admission instead of just cancelling it?

Damn, regardless of whether you can defer, that really sucks to have such a big delay out of nowhere. My hope for you is that you can find something satisfying to do to make you happy about that extra time instead of feeling like it's wasted.

Talk to your school, explain the situation. Try to arrange make-ups earlier, maybe online..
