Deferred MBA

Incoming Analyst accepted to a few deferred Mba programs. Does anyone know if you can accept multiple + pay the deposit every year and then pick towards the end of the deferral period?

Most bschools have a clause in the contract that says your admission offer can be revoked if you hold places at multiple programs.

I know for certain that Wharton and GSB does.

do you mind sharing your rationale behind doing this? I'm a rising senior that's planning on applying to the deferred programs and wanted to see how others viewed each school.

Applied to all the deferred programs and not 100% sure I even want to yo bizz school. Just wanted the option down the line.

Not sure what I will want in 5 yrs so thinking about committing to 2/3 if possible

Friend of mine worked in the admissions office for his business school. If these schools are M7, don't do it. The M7 (according to him) do occasionally share info on students who have already committed and compare lists to check for double deposits. If they aren't M7 or only 1 is M7 etc..., then double-deposit away.
