Call them and ask anonymously. Its possible that in January, once they have a better idea of the applicant pool and where they are relative to hitting their targets, their feelings may change. If by January they are like "OMG WTF OUR LSAT MEDIAN IS FUCKED" they might want to take another look at Crowing. Its not like he's been rejected - just deferred.
Just speculation. If I had to guess they won't allow it, but its worth asking about.
I don't think it will work, but there is reasoning for it. By deferring instead of rejecting, they are indicating that there is at least a small possibility that the remainder of the cycle may not turn out as they expect. A 2nd ED would of course require another contract, so that's certainly to their benefit. The disadvantage is that they would then have to return another decision prior to 3/1, but then again it's easy enough to just render another deferrel or a ding or whatever.
Still, I think it probably won't work mainly on account of principle even though it seems to be practically beneficial for them as far as I can tell as an outsider to the admissions process.
