I think questions about work experience were asked before, but I wanted to ask how bad it looks if during my year off, I worked somewhere for about 5 months after graduation, quit, and then had a big time gap until law school started? Well I quit my job about a month and a half ago for personal reasons and I can't find a job and it looks like I might have to be unemployed until August.
I don't think it's a big deal, just be prepared to answer what you were doing.
what if i was just doing things that I have always wanted to do with my free time? like staying at home, going to the beach, going to the book store to read, sitting at a coffee shop, etc? basically taking leisure very seriously.
i just feel i will never have a time like this again... and i want to just enjoy it.
You can do that, but don't say that. I understand you wanting to do that, but honestly, if you came in and said that you just sat around to me in an interview, I'd rank you lower than someone who did something with their time.
Two words: volunteer work. Surely you can find something to do for several hours a week that would be enjoyable, not a chore, and give you something to talk about.
