Re: Gap Year(s) Advice

Do whatever will help your GPA. If you're grades are dropping and you feel burnt out, take a break. The real world is more difficult than college, but that might help you appreciate college more when you go back.

I wouldn't spend a lot of money to go to some prestigious UG program if you intend to go to law school. Law schools don't really care about where your degree is from - just your GPA. Save the money, stay at a school with a low price and low academic standards, get a great GPA, and attend somewhere prestigious for law school.

I'm sorry, I assumed that since you were asking for advice on the 'Law School Admissions Forum,' you wanted to know what would be best for law school admissions. I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask for general life advice.
