Rejected deferral requests


I was wondering whether anyone got the same answer to a deferral request for the NYU LL.M. Is this a standard answer?

Thank you for your e-mail message. Your request to defer your admission to NYU School of Law has been carefully considered by the Committee on Graduate Admissions. I am sorry to inform you that the Committee is unable to offer you a deferral to Fall 2011.

Experience has shown that very frequently those who ask for a deferral never actually enroll, and yet continue to hold a place in the class, which then compromises the prospect of admission for worthy applicants in the following year. However, if you reapply in the future, there is a good chance you will be admitted. Of course, the admissions process is comparative by nature, and we cannot guarantee admission, but again, you stand a good chance.

If you plan to reapply for Fall 2011, kindly let us know, and wed be happy to hold onto your application materials for one year. You therefore would not need to submit your transcripts or a letter of recommendation again. However, you would need to submit an application, other supporting documents, and the application fee. The fact that you have requested a deferral would not influence the Committee on Graduate Admissions' decision, and the Committee would be delighted to see your application next year.

If you still intend to enroll in the Fall 2010 semester, please reply to this email.

I am very sorry with respect to the deferral, but we encourage you to reapply in the future. Please accept my very best wishes for your future academic and professional plans.

Best wishes,

Frank J. Salfi

Looks like standard because they are not replying to any of the reasons you gave them but more like a general concern about deferrals.

Any idea on rate of success of NYU granting deferrals? I have admission to the Traditional LLM, but all funding options seem to have run out, barring one, which hopefully should be resolved one way or another by the end of this week.... Would appreciate any insights/information.

Thanks.
