How do you know that?? (Also IP 1st quartile and very grateful for all the support and info from this page!)

There's usually a little movement in June as well. And there's some final movement at the end of July for individuals that defer for other programs in the College of medicine (such as MBA). So my guess would be 5 more spots of movement.

Correct me if I am wrong but usually when a deferral is granted, that seat will no longer be available. So lets say Sask takes 100 people. If 3 people are granted deferral, then the total seat that year becomes 97 and next year becomes 103. Let me know if I am wrong but this seems to be the case when I check the statistics from other schools.

Incorrect. There will always be ~100 seats per year. If a deferral is granted, they will move down the waitlist and accept the next available applicant. The following year, the College will accept one less student as the deferred student has effectively been given one of the spots for that subsequent year.

How many deferrals are given each year? Is there a limit? Can't find anything about this.

Based on the amfc website it varies year to year. Normally between 3 and 6 it seems like. I think as long as you request it for a valid reason (school, athletics, compassionate) They’ll give it to you

According to the AFMC data over the past 5 years there's been between 3-7 deferrals each year. I don't know if they cap it each year but they approved mine very quickly and easily :) One of you guys should be getting an email tomorrow!
