Here's my exciting news in a nutshell:
I applied to the last cycle. I was accepted at three mediocre schools, denied from two really great schools, and wait-listed at three great schools. I ultimately decided to wait a year before going to law school. It would give me an opportunity to get some work experience, retake the LSATs, and actually get into a school that I would really want to attend. Because of this, I have been able to stay on the wait-lists at these schools without committing to any others.
Today I got a call from George Washington saying that a spot had opened up and that they were very impressed with my application.
I guess I'm writing on here because I'm looking for some advice from those who know the process of applying to law schools. I had been pretty set with the idea of not going to law school this year, but I think it would be pretty crazy not to take this opportunity. I had a pretty mediocre LSAT (160) and I can't be sure that I would be able to improve my LSAT enough that I could ever get into GW (or a school of equal caliber) again. On the other hand, I moved all the way from Michigan to California for a pretty exciting job, so moving to DC in a few weeks would be a pretty stunning and expensive change.
So, I guess my question is:
Would I be absolutely crazy to pass this up?

If not you need to think harder, but I don't think you can go wrong here. Either work and try again or go off to a top-20 law school.
As far as moving to DC in a short time frame. It is doable, you should check and see if there are any spots open at the Aston (GW law dorm), even if there isn't check some of the other local places like Columbia Plaza, they always seem to have availability and special GW rates.
