Hmm... This all good advise. My only concern is actually GETTING an entry level job. I'm going to receive a BA in Classical Humanities so it's not like I'll have a relevant degree to any job to which I may apply (unless I teach) and I'm really concerned about that. Also, I'm right now under my parent's health insurance and that would be lost if I took a year off, another financial worry of mine. What would be a good entry-level job to take? Again, I understand the benefits of it all but I'm not sure I CAN get a good, fairly well-paying job that will allow me this freedom.
Is living at home out of the question? It's a helluva lot easier to save some cash living at home if it doesn't drive you crazy and if your parents don't mind.

The problem is that I am currently living with them right now as an undergrad. What I was really hoping to do was to move out on my own for a year before adjusting to life in law school. I'm really not sure I want to live at home for another year just to save some money.
Incidently, all the former lawyers and law students I know who have left practice/school all thought that law school was the thing for them when they completed their undergrad.
