    Well, what happens if you commit and then get accepted? Are they going to hunt you down? Its end of March, and the likelihood of acceptance at this point is slim, so I'd commit.

    With the odds of getting an admission going down , I would commit.

    Well its another 1.5 years before you can get into school. So it doesn't seem like working for at least a year would be a problem.
