Hello all!

I am currently waiting to hear back regarding an admission decision. Meanwhile, I have just received a job offer for September, for which I was given one week to accept or decline. In the event that I receive an offer of admission following the above deadline, what is the likelihood that I would be permitted to defer admission by one year?

Any current or former students with successful/unsuccessful deferral requests are especially welcome to weigh in!

Many thanks! 🙂

I don't know about McGill but most law school's won't allow a deferral for this reason - but you should definitely contact the school and find out for sure. 

If I were you, I'd accept the job and then quit (or tell them you can't start) if you end up doing law school in September.

Thank you. Pardon my ignorance, but would it be best to contact the school anonymously or not?

I'd probably just call up the admissions office and try to get someone on the phone, I doubt they'd ask for your name.

Not at McGill but I was granted a deferral for similar reasons, because I wanted to keep working for another year to gain valuable experience. This was in 2020 though, so things might have been different because of COVID.
