Best Reason to Defer

Postby lawschool?s » Tue Jun 12, 2012 6:57 pm

I am writing a deferal request and was hoping to know what you guys consider the best reason to defer or at least in the eyes of a commitee.

What situations in the past have allowed you guys to defer?

I think potential terminal illness would suffice. Like taking a year off for Chemo... I am pretty sure they would let you defer.

I originally deferred to work a year in a boutique (shitty) Los Angeles real estate litigation firm. Job was highly unimpressive. As long as you're not picking your nose for a year, they'll grant your deferral.
