Sounds like a deferral to me.

GW was so transfer-friendly this year (transferapps lists more than one top 20% candidate as getting the letter, AND someone getting into GW but dinged at AU), it may work against you.
(In fact, does transferapps list any GW dings yet?) Answer -- two, someone trying to transfer with a 3.0 and someone top 16% at T3.
But, in the long run, of course the GW JD is better than the third-tier JD. Best of luck.
You need to make it VERY clear that you are not participating on your old school's law review, and you should err on the safe side.
I can say I would never give up 80k / year... What tier law school will you be attending? Because if it is a tier three two/three/four expect to make between 35,000 to 65,000 starting salary. Perhaps your job is so boring that writing and filing papers all day would be thrilling. Perhaps I am just in the lamest law office known to mankind.
I certainly wish in my sophmore year of college I understood how uncertain the legal profession is. If I had, I never ever would've travelled this path so far (or at least would have aimed far higher than my "anything above 160" motto). Really though, how is one when they are 19 and focused on school expected to research law school so effectively?
I am quite certain I will have researched this field far more than any of my potential class. Though, perhaps not. Perhaps we are all of the mindset "despite all of the statistical evidence combined with anecdotal evidence and news stories, it will work out for me."
I think I now understand what a religous person must feel having realized how false god is. My god happened to be law school.
Does the ABA recieve money from these law schools it unnecessarily opens? Otherwise the over-supply of attorneys seems to be due to incompetence.
Plans for rest of day: continuing to feel sorry for myself.
