philosophe Posted March 4, 2014 Share Posted March 4, 2014 Question -- Have any of you heard anything about policies regarding deferring admission by one year? I've heard that departments will usually only do this in "exceptional" circumstances... but I was wondering if anyone had any information on that. Background: I've been working in higher education for two years as an administrator at a top 5 university, and the dream for me is basically to one day teach philosophy and hold an administrative role (dean, provost, etc). I was recently accepted to BU for an MA in Higher Ed, and it's only a year. (I'm also waiting to hear from Harvard, though not holding my breath). Anyway, I was wondering if I could even consider it an option to defer a year and get the extra credential. I'm not sure if this would be seen as overkill on the job market, but considering my eventual goals it seems like it might be well placed. I'm wondering if it's even worth it to ask, or if they will take this as a sign of lack of interest. If it comes down to either / or, then I'd definitely take the philosophy phd. Thanks in advance for your thoughts! Differance 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
