Deferred Admission

Some applicants may wish to apply to law school now but postpone enrollment until another year. Strongly qualified applicants may request deferred admission to Michigan by filling out the appropriate section of the application and by attaching an explanation of why deferred admission is desired. Requests for deferred admission will be approved only when it is clear that an applicant would easily qualify for admission in the year of desired entry. Consequently, applications for deferred admission are reviewed with special rigor. Deferral requests made after a regular offer of admission will be considered but may be difficult to grant.
