In my humble opinion, it is worth taking another year to boost your application if there are schools you really want to go to and you are wait-listed there.
If you think you can do better on the LSAT - take the time to do that. Take the october exam and prep fully for it over a long period of time.
Get some valuable work experience for Law School in the year. Being a paralegal - eh -kind of a waste of time for many people, but can be valuable if you are working in a field of law that you want to enter. Another option is to find an impressive job that law schools will like to boost you app. Public Interest work, something with tons of writing or oration, etc.
I wrote this twice, cause i pressed back and it deleted my writing.
But, if you look at some of hte top law schools, transferring is always an option.
Some of them (t-14's) are anywhere from 17-50+ (i didnt look at all of them, but harvard i think was like 34 and i think NYU was close to 40).
It's always a possibility, I think it all depends on your goals and your ambitions. How good you are going to do in law school and how close u were to getting into schools (what kind of scores u had) play a large role as well in transferring (as per LSAC website).
your GPA/LSAT will still play a role just not a huge role.
It's risky business to count on transferring, but it is definitely possible.
