I have gotten into some of my target schools; however, given the state of the legal job market, would it make sense to not enroll work for a year while studying for the LSAT?
Since you have been accepted to some of your target law schools, therefore accomplishing your goal, I don't understand why you are asking the question.
You can enroll and start law school in the fall at one of your target schools and get going with earning a J.D. rather than lingering in preparing for the LSAT mode for another year.
Depending on the policies of the schools you have been accepted to (somebody mentioned Florida in the thread, but IDK your target schools because you didn't mention any and I haven't read your posts in other threads), some schools let you enroll and then defer when you start 1L for a year. If you want to or need to take another year to make $$ to build up savings or to travel or whatever, you might want to determine if that is an option with the schools that have accepted you. Plus, if it is an option, you can still prep more and take the LSAT again if you feel like it, but I just don't see why you would since you already hit your targets and accomplished your goal.
Full time Law school programs take three years to earn the degree, who knows what the condition of the legal employment market and economy will be in 2015. Many things can and will change between now and then.
