SLS Deferral policy


Nail

So it turns out I've been admitted to Stanford, which really came as a surprise as I had been put on the waitlist and was advised that it would be really rare for applicants in that list to get admission.
This was of course a satisfactory and most welcome news, as SLS was one of my dream schools. However, the two main problems are that I am in trouble to get the LLM funding this year and I have already made my plans for next year as if I were not admitted. This entails investing my money in another project and agreeeing with a future employer for a job experience during the next year, while waiting to apply again for the LLM with some scholarship hopefully available.
With this situation, it would be really great if I could secure a place at SLS...does anyone know if that would be possible, for example by paying a certain amount for deposit?
Thanks a lot!

just email or call them and ask yourself. I don't think you will get much information about this on this board.
If I were you I would ask Stanford if THEY could give you a loan on the tuition... I wouldn't wait, I'd go this year if I were you.
