So, I've been researching Fulbright's rather obsessively the past couple of days, and while LS has been the dream for a while, I've been enamored with London and would love an opportunity to go back, ever since I had my study abroad there this past summer. If anyone has any experience/anecdotes or just links about the following questions, I would be incredibly grateful.
1) Can you defer LS for a year (or two) if you get a Fulbright grant?
2) what options do you have - job wise - if you first do LS, then get a Fulbright? By this I mean, would you be able to defer employment (clerkships, or working in a firm) if you were awarded a Fulbright, or would you have to come back your Fulbright looking for work? And how hard/easy would it be to find work?
Obviously, its incredibly hard to get a Fulbright, but on the incredibly lucky shot that I actually GET one, id like to know what my options would be in regards to LS.
Thanks for any potential insight guys!

Schools vary greatly on how willing they are to grant deferrals. Harvard, at least, grants them pretty much automatically so long as you apply for one before May 1 and have a plan to do something that is more productive than eating cheetos and playing guitar hero for a year. Columbia I believe also has a pretty liberal deferral policy. You'd have to look at the specific schools to see what they do, though a Fulbright is probably one of the things stricter schools will grant one for. As for doing a Fulbright after LS, I don't know.
