I sent an email today just letting the admissions office know that my deposit was on its way, and all I got back was "The 15th is a postmark date," but perhaps they're less glib on the phone!

As of yesterday, I'm officially committed to going to Vandy! Now I just have to figure out how to find an apartment without physically visiting one, because I definitely can't get enough time off work to go apartment-hunting.
Thanks for all the help guys - I still have absolutely no idea what I'm doing in terms of my plans, but I feel a lot better about considering postponing. I could always take the LSAT again to see if I could pull off a truly insane score, but my score would probably go down...I could always take PrepTest 51 and see what I get!
Anyone reapplied or considering doing so WITHOUT a new LSAT score?
Despite all the information I've gathered about applying to law school the first time around, I know surprisingly little about RE-applying in a different cycle. I'm currently (although not very seriously, yet) considering postponing law school for a year for a non-deferral-worthy reason, which would likely mean I'd have to re-apply next cycle.
For those who know about the process (i.e. those who've done it, know people who've done it, or otherwise know hard facts about the situation,) I've got a couple of questiosn!
Is an applicant inherently less likely to be accepted to a school to which he or she has applied previously, just because it's a re-application? Say I got into a school this cycle, chose to postpone for a year, and then re-applied next cycle - do I have the same chance of getting in, or less because I'm some sort of a flight risk? Along those same lines, would scholarship opportunities be less likely for re-applicants?
If I do re-apply, would I be wise to include a supplementary statement explaining exactly why I chose to wait a year, and making it clear that I've got all of my ducks in a row and I'm unequivocally ready to attend in the fall?
Do I have to have all of my recommenders re-send my recs to the LSAC, or can they hold on to them for a year and re-send to the schools next cycle? The same question would apply to transcripts, actually!
Sorry for all of the questions - I really have no idea about the RE-application process, and if this would even be a wise idea! Thanks in advance if you can answer some of my questions!

So I got an email from Northwestern tonight saying I could download my decision letter (which was quite neat, acutally,) and the decision was to place my application "hold" until May, and then inform me of whether I had been accepted, dinged, or waitlisted.
I didn't think there were other options besides accept/reject/waitlist, but apparently being on hold is one of them! Is this just a waitlist in sheep's clothing, or what?
Thanks for all of the responses! I just noticed that GW and GULC have unusually large incoming class sizes compared to most other law schools. Are your writing programs pass/fail? I've heard they are at a lot of schools.
