I'm a deferred MBA applicant.
Confused whether to apply for deferred programs at Emory, Rice, Vanderbilt (Owen) and the other 20-30 ranked schools.

Highly unlikely for me to get into top-10 in deferred intake.

Do you suggest, locking a seat at these B-schools will be worth?

Guys please pour in your thoughts, as I'll avoid applying in remaining top-10 and divert my energy to the safer schools.

Deferring is a safe bet. Why not.

I'm not sure whether my current supervisor would grant me such large number of referrals.
Plus their dates are near the dates for Darden and Haas.
So, just wanted to know whether MBA from these schools make that much sense to lock in 3 years earlier.

I can also apply after 3 years!
