It depends on the combination of LSAT/GPA, and the school you're applying to. For instance, for a 171/2.9, work experience would be very important for someone trying to get into Northwestern. For someone with a 174/3.95, work experience that's good enough could get you Y or S, which are both unpredictable and go beyond just numbers. If you have a low GPA, a lot of great WE will put distance between you and your undergrad years. Etc.

Why would you want to do this? Maybe you are a bit burnedout now. I can't imagine that after you graduate UG you will be happy just sitting at home, reading and studying for the LSAT. You should have more than this in your life, even if you just volunteer at a soup kitchen or do some other volunteer work. You will have a blank line on your resume for that year.
