If you were single, I would say go ahead with option #2. That way, you can save money (not a lot because of the conversion rate) and have fun at the same time. I wish I could do that, but when you are married, you have to think for the other person too. My husband will have to support both of us while I go to school, so the least I could do is to bring less debt upon us.

I really enjoyed my experience in Korea, but it's not for everyone. So make sure you know what you're getting yourself into before you sign a contract. If you want more information, feel free to pm me.

thats one thing. however, one cannot and should not generalise. im just saying that there is increased 'risk' that should be of concern to all persons contemplating physical (or other types of) intimacy with the subject(s) of this exchange.
on the overall, they just have a bad rep. lets keep it at that.
Piiz's opinion of English teachers in Korea is just low after meeting me.
But seriously, she's right. The men who go abroad to teach English are often SHADY.e Like escaping open warrants and child support payments kind of shady. The women are generally pretty cool.

My options for this year are:
1. Study and read up in hopes of preparing myself for 1L while living at home. Work to increase my chances at becoming the best student I can be.
2. Teach English in China/Korea. Travel, have the time of my life.
3. Work/ Internship at Law Firm while living at home (have a decent chance at scoring ~30k/year job as a legal secretary/aide sort of thing at friend's firm)
Pertinent information to my decision is that I make more money playing poker than any job that I can realistically get.
My question, in my opinion, boils down to: is it better to live at home and minimize debt OR prepare for law school OR party and have fun before law school OR acquire work experience. I know I can possibly do a few of these things simultaneously, but lets say I had to pick 1.
Any thoughtfull input would be appreaciated.
Make money and have fun at the same time. Don't do the poker thing- especially if you still owe money. I would go for a blend of work experience, fun and money. No one needs a year to prep for law school. That's what law school is for. Especially if you got into a T-10.
