TLS is not representative at all, most people work for at least a few years before going to law school. I work in the legal field right now and I have yet to meet a lawyer who went to LS directly from ug.

I will be 22. I'm nervous. Starting to think that it might be a good idea to get out of the education bubble for at least a year.

i took a few years off, and I think its really the best way to go. Take a year off, study and enjoy the real world. enter law school after at least a year off after undegrad.

That's what I usually hear. I just don't know what I'd do if I took a year off. I could keep working at the law firm I'm at right now, but I wouldn't be doing anything really life changing. How would I phrase that to the admissions committee in my request for deferred admission?
