I'm pretty set on a year off after undergrad for a number of reasons. For one, I'll be graduating in 3 years and want to further show my maturity. Two, I want to have plenty of time to study for the LSAT. Three, the purpose of the hiatus is to better my chances at the better Universities, not to rest or party for a year.Some people think Teach for America helps your chances of admission
With that said, what is the best activity for a year off? Volunteering in a pro-bono law firm? If the summers and breaks during undergrad are spent interning and working in politics and economics, should I then show my interest with law during this year off? Is it good to spend an entire year at one place to show dedication or does it matter? Thanks a lot.
But my personal vote is for something that BOTH helps you save up money for law school AND gives you some experience so you're sure you want to go through this hell. Added bonus if it's something that helps your resume so you can get a real job, whether or not you go to law school
