Deferral Requests?

Postby sco1726 » Wed Jan 25, 2012 2:06 pm

I'm hoping to defer a year before attending law school, but I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do yet. I'm already in at one of my top choices and I'm still waiting to hear from a few more, but is it reasonable to expect that schools will allow me to defer as long as I have something reasonably productive to do in the meantime? I don't want to turn down any job opportunities or preclude myself from any of my top choices, but decisions have deadlines so I'm trying to figure out the best course of action. Thanks!

Most schools are pretty stingy with deferrals, but there's no way to know until you ask.
