EM Wood, are you by any chance from Ohio? I like the woody Hayes quote.

I would recommend not going to law school. There's a reason the three schools you mention are awful. Law is all about critical thinking, and while that certainly does not exclude religious belief, attempting to combine a legal education with fundamentalist religion simply does not work. Get a degree in theology or divinity if religion is that important to you.
I feel like I'm the only person on this board who will say they liked Kaplan. But, I did. Yes it was 1300 for summer prep classes but it raised my score 16 points and I def think that paying a grande or so for that is worth it considering how much 4 years of tuition will set you back. I'd just like to put that out there for anyone else asking aobut Kaplan, it's not some horrible money pit (at least my local one wasn't).
I found the TM weekend class to be a good value. Its relatively cheap, gives you the information you need and only takes 2 days, then its up to you to put in the time taking practice exams(and I might add you can't do enough of this, especially take practice exams under timed conditions.
Hate to break up the pregnancy talk here bu I have a question. I'm looking to enter ls at the rather young of 21. Basically, I took a LOT of duel enrollment classes in high school. Consequently, I'm able to graduate in 2 years with very little effort. Right now I'm seriously considering taking a year off. The problem is I have no idea what I'd really do. I'm hearing a lot about 9-5 jobs but I'm not sure what I'd like to do.n
Also, I had a thought: how is taking a year off going to help my admissions? I'll just be delaying the LSAT a year by taking it at the end of my senior year instead of my junior year (although it could certainly help). Plsu, I don't see how that year off improves my resume because I'll be new to the job when I'm writing the resume. Any advice would be helpful.
Why don't you teach for a year or so? Money is not that great, but it looks good on the resume and it's a noble thing to do.
