This is from GW Law website: "We consider requests for deferral on a case-by-case basis. We will consider your reasons for seeking a deferral and let you know our decision within one or two weeks of receipt of your request. We generally grant one-year deferrals, although we will grant two-year deferrals in some special cases (e.g., individuals who are called to military duty or who choose to participate in Teach for America or the Peace Corps)."
Basically, you need to have a pretty good reason to do it. Otherwise they could refuse your request and withdraw your offer of admission if you don't agree to matriculate this year.
Thanks for the info, I think that I may still look into it
