get in and defer. that is what i did with duke. Said some bullshit about needing to work and make some more money (partially true). But in reality, I wanted to enjoy another year partying and living it up in NYC while having the security of a kickass law school to attend when I am ready to actually work

I'd go with the second one.

Seriously though, why not just apply for the year you plan on going? Seems odd to apply two years prior.

Honestly, I may do the same. As I want to get the application process out of the way and know what i'm doing. Then probably work for a year, save up some money, and have fun, without worrying about where I am going to be the next year. This would be contingent on having an acceptable cycle the first time around.
