Law school early deferral programs at Columbia and Harvard.
Columbia Law School’s Leadership Experience Admission Deferral (“LEAD”) Fellowship program is hosting an information session on Wednesday, April 12, from 12:15 – 1:15 PM EST.
LEAD is the deferred admissions program through which qualified undergraduate juniors and seniors can be admitted to Columbia Law School with the understanding that they will defer matriculation for two years after graduating from college. During the two-year deferral period, admitted LEAD Fellows must be meaningfully employed on a full-time basis and/or engaged in a venture, partnership, fellowship, or graduate studies. Some successful applicants may even receive a funding grant from the law school to advance a venture or project during this time.
Students can find more information about the fellowship and register for next week’s information session at our website:
