Only 1 acceptance so far, what are you going to do?

I have only been accepted into one school so far.  Still have 3 pending.  For all of you in a similar situation are you securing your seat with that one school?  Are you gambling hoping to get into a better school?  Are you thinking about reapplying next term to get into the school you want with better scores?

Me I secured my seat, no time to waste.  Comments?? Thoughts??

Send the seat deposit and pray for the rest to come through

I am in at DePaul, but waiting on 6. I sent in the first half of my deposit and am waiting to see how the rest end up.
Deferring has seriously crossed my mind, given that next year could be a banner year at my office. Can you defer and then apply to other schools the next cycle while holding onto you acceptance?

Some schools will allow you to do it.  I am really considering sending in my deposit and then deferring for a year as well.  I'll give the LSAT another shot, enjoy a year of relaxing without the stress of school, and hopefully get in somewhere better.

If not, then at least I've secured my spot.
