Harvard is Creating a New 2-Year Work Gap Pathway to Law School

Harvard is creating a new 2-year work gap pathway from undergrad to law school.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, Harvard has created a free law school deferral program for junior undergraduates. In this program, junior students can apply for and receive a law school admissions offer contingent on them taking two years off after undergrad to get real-world work experience they can then bring into law school.

The takeaway? How do we similarly encourage and build these bridges from our undergraduate to graduate programs that don’t insist on full-time students forgoing earning income for a seven year stretch – unrealistic for the vast majority of the population.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
