I have just started thinking about applying ED next year to Penn and getting my application in as early as possible. If Tommytahoe can wait a year maybe I can too. If I worked hard for a year then I could save more $. That would be just as good as a scholarship, sort of. I'll have to give this some more thought.
Well, it's against my better judgment in many ways (taking an extra year, that is). Ballsy is one way of putting it. I can think of a less flattering way, but this is a family thread.
But, though I've finally finished my BA, and am on a roll, I know that a world of difference can be made with cycle #2, simply by getting a 165.
Not an easy choice, if it comes to that. I have 2 months for one of 8 schools to make me an offer, so Plan B may very well never come to pass. Do think about it though. If you want to go to law school this Fall at all costs, then there's no dilemma. If there is a point at which going this year is not acceptable, ask yourself where that line is, and on what grounds (money, school of choice, etc).
I'm not looking forward to having to take a year off, but if it comes to that, I have a sheet of paper that will tll me what good I can make of it that being a 1L would not permit.
