I've heard that it helps to spend time in the workforce, and of course, military service is usually looked favorably upon by colleges as well because it shows dedication, self-discipline, and good core values.  Of course, since I'm not in law school myself I can't say this with any large degree of accuracy except that I've heard that the more prestigious law schools like to see some good life experiences in addition to high scores and GPAs.

Concur (I'm ex-military, too) with above. LSAT and GPA is WAY more important, tho'.
