Admission Decision Help

For personal reasons, I've opted to take a gap year instead of starting college this year. But I've already accepted admission to an Ivy League University. So here's the question: if I decide to apply again next year, will they still guarantee my admission? Or will they even consider me at all after I turned them down? I need to decide by this Saturday.

Hi!

For this, I would recommend deferring your application until the following year. Most schools have a way to do this, including Ivy League schools. Call up the admissions office for advice on how to do this. Enjoy your gap year! Best of luck!
