Most schools will allow you to defer for a year, so just send in your deposit.

I had the same thought, and I was wondering about what would happen if I bombed the LSAT when I retook it next year.  So, to at least secure a chance for myself I sent in my deposit and contacted the admissions office of my "safety school" to request a one-year deferral.

It might cost you between $100 and $500, but you'll have the peace of mind knowing that at least you'll be going somewhere.



May 1st from what I've heard.

I am also considering delaying a year.  I have recived rejections from my top three choices, and those left on the list, I am just not excited about.  I am glad to see that I am no the only one with seconds thoughts about attending this Fall. But, at 27 years old I am ready to move on.

I'm older too, but the thought of "settling" still doesn't appeal to me no matter how old I am.  I suppose that our decision to delay another year will become more solidified over the next couple months as our waitlist options pan out.

What would you do for a year if you decided to reapply?

he he  :D

A support group would be a cool idea.

I'm thinking of just having a year to hang out and enjoy life.  I'll probably work out a little more, play some golf, get a job at a local law firm to gain experience, and save cash for my move next year to law school.  Also, I'd have between June and November to study for the December '05 LSAT, and having taken it once I already have a good idea about what the whole experience is like.

I'm looking forward to a year off from school as well.  All of the deadlines, homework on weekends, etc. was starting to get to me.  I've attended summer classes every year for the past four years as well, so I'm in a big need of a break before embarking up the J.D. mountain at law school!

I've been giving some serious thought to taking off for a year.

Has anyone out there taken a year off and re-taken the LSAT?  If so, what was it like during that year, what did you learn, and what did you do for work? 

I think that it would be neat to get some advice from some of you who have done what so many of us are thinking of doing.   :)

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: STUDENT LOAN INTEREST RATES

Actually, the date to reconsolidate by is July 1at.  I spoke with my lender about this last month.

Congress just recently voted to increase these rates, and if you want to lock in at a lower rate then be sure to send those consolidation forms in ASAP after the school year ends.

I actually have the paper work all filled out.

Sure, I'll be paying a monthly loan bill while in law school, but it really isn't a big deal seeing that I'm saving a lot in interest.

I couldn't find any others either. 

It seems that the Borgata has a rule that if their waitresses gain more than 7% of their weight, then they are put on unpaid suspension until they lose it.  To my knowledge, not even Hooters had a policy that strict.
