I'm a rising junior and will very likely apply to physics graduate school during senior year, but I'm also thinking about applying for a Fulbright Scholarship or other programs that would be a year long and not necessarily involve physics. Everything I found when I searched this forum said applying after graduating without extra physics hurt your application, so I'd still like to apply as a senior. Would it be possible, if accepted to a school, for me to take a year off before matriculating? It seemed universal for undergrad admissions if kids wanted to apply to college and then take a gap year, although I understand at this level it might depend on the specific university. So far I've looked at websites for a few different schools and searched on this forum but haven't found an answer.
