If you have info on class size for your school (class of 2014 to class of 2015 change) or the change in median (class of 2014 to class of 2015) post in this thread. I've been told that Wake Forest kept its medians of the past, but since the wording on this is vague (not specific to class of 2012) i'm guessing there may have been some drop.

***IF YOU WOULD PREFER NOT TO POST NUMBERS IN THIS THREAD FEEL FREE TO PM THEM TO ME INSTEAD***

Wake forest has announced that the soon to be 1L class size will be 130 students, down from 185 last year, which is a 30% decrease. I'm happy to hear this since it seems like its good for the school and all students applying for legal jobs in the area.

If you have info on class size for your school (class of 2014 to class of 2015 change) post in this thread.

Makes me think it'll be easy to transfer into Wake next year

Very possible, but they're not going to have 55 people transfer in (especially given the widespread awareness of the concerns about attending law school at sticker price).

There are plenty of students at T3/T4 who'd be happy to trade up

Really interested to see this information trickle in. Still 2-3 weeks until most orientations though.

Texas is significantly down as well - they told us this via e-mail - but unsure how much yet.

It looks like Arizona State University is going to buck the trend and increase their class size.

171 to approximately 250

University of Arizona is going to drop

158 to 125

I think ASU found 79 suckers who saw the jump in USNWR and decided it meant something. UA still places better.

I think it is more with U of A being a hell hole. Crime is out of control in Tucson. http://www.pimasheriff.org/prevention/crime-maps/

The place is dusty and dirty.



While Phoenix is recovering from the recession, Tucson is digging in.

University of Arizona places better in Tucson and Las Vegas. They don't place well in Phoenix, ASU gets the first pick of those jobs.

ASU only had 63% in legal jobs and 5% in big law which are both objectively garbage, they are the very definition of USNWR pandering. UA only had 6.3% in big law, but at least they placed a whopping 10% more students in FT legal jobs while not messing around with fellowships like ASU.

Honestly, I'm really struggling to think of a hypothetical individual better served by going to ASU over UA at equal cost unless their LS goals involve bagging a larger pool of UG coeds.

It's not like UA is lacking for hot girls. And they're not much brighter either.

Hastings is going from 400 to 320.

PSU is going from 220 to 170.

GW is reducing its class by an as yet unspecified amount.

LOL at GW "reducing its class." That's like saying I reduced my 401k back in 2008.

Any info re: the t14? It seems like gulc would struggle to get the 300 or so 170s to maintain their median.
