If, after receiving an offer of admission, you wish to defer enrollment, you should send us an email stating your reasons. Deferrals are granted at the discretion of the Dean of Admissions, and considerations include your strength as a candidate relative to anticipated future applicant pools, your commitment to attending law school, and your plans for the deferral year. It is more difficult for us to grant deferrals that have no clear end date. It also gets increasingly difficult to defer candidates as we get closer to the start of classes.
We automatically grant deferrals for Teach for America Corps members and City Year AmeriCorps members who are or will be completing their term of service.
