This is a good start.
Regarding taking a year off (if you are a senior in college this fall): this is probably a really good idea.
However, you may want to apply for this upcoming cycle as well, and see what you get.
If you happen to get big money from one of these schools, maybe you won't want to wait a year.
What specific LSAT/GPA combination a given school gives big money to can change drastically from year to year.
Luckily, I have very little undergrad debt. So, while I'm well aware that debt minimization is a good thing (I turned down higher ranked schools than my current one so I'd save big bucks), I'd be willing to take on debt if accepted if it meant not needing to wait. I'm quite anxious to get the whole process over with and it really hasn't even begun.
