taking a year off after first year?

Postby jdhopeful11 » Thu May 20, 2010 12:06 am

Hello all,

I will be starting my 1L in the fall at a t80, but I also have a pending application with the State Department as a foreign officer. If approved, I would be deployed at the end of my 1L, and serve no more than 2 years. Before i contact my LS, can anybody tell me if law schools generally allow students to take a year or two off and then returning?

If i do well in my 1L, I would like to use my experience to transfer to a t14. Would prospective law schools frown upon a disruption in my law studies?

I would ask the officials at the law schools you're referring to. I have heard of someone taking a break during their law school career, though: a guy at Yale who took a break to work as one of the head economic advisors in the Obama campaign. As much as I'd like to give my own prediction of what your chances are, I'm going to resist the temptation because I don't know enough about the inner workings of the law schools you're referring to.

Also, this is the wrong forum to be asking a question like this.
