If I defer an acceptance, am I prohibited from applying to schools next cycle? Does this vary by school?

For those who have already visited schools, how insightful was attending a class?
I'll soon be attending my first admitted students weekend, and its organized program includes attending a mock class in lieu of attending an actual class. I'm quite disappointed, as I was looking forward to a class visit as a vehicle for observing student behavior and output in the classroom as opposed to a means of familiarizing myself with the structure of a typical class. Unfortunately, my trip halfway across the country will be short, and scheduling a class visit outside of the time frame of the organized program would take precious time away from exploring a new city.
Is it worth it? Was observing classroom dynamics an integral part of your visits? Are there enough other opportunities to gain meaningful impressions of the student body?
If one's parents are wealthy, does it pay to fill out Need Access forms for those schools that request them? My parents paid for college in its entirety, through last year, but they are not contributing a cent toward law school. However, my sense is that I would have no shot at assistance at any school that reviewed their financial information, and that I need not bother my parents to share their personal data. Thoughts?
