The Illinois admissions dean said in her thread here that apps are down this year at every school she is aware of. I heard the UChi dean said she expected fewer apps at a student meeting yesterday.

Semi-related question: does anyone have details on the 2013 US News medians/25/75? The TLS frontpage shows data for 2012, and US News itself charges. I was wondering if anyone posted them here (someone did for 2012)

Any updates on Illinois? Timeline for release? Seems like they've fallen off the map.

So applications declined again this year. Anyone know the breakdown as far as LSAT ranges?

They still haven't released # of test takers from October. This will have a significant impact on our cycle, for obvious reasons.

They never publicly release them. Either contact them directly or wait until the next US News. If you need to know for strategy purposes, you need to do the former.

Does anyone know when LSAC usually updates their profiles of schools with the new medians and such?

The Class of 2014 data was published in the ABA-LSAC Guide on July 18, 2012.

:shock: That is by far the largest drop in the GPA median... looks like they had to sacrifice the GPA in order to hold on to the 167

The drop of 76 in class size is super nice, too.

Wow. Major Kudos to NW for that big cut in class size.

Does that 264 from last year include AJD or JD/MBA people? For some reason I thought NU's normal JD class from last year was much closer to 200 than that. Also, when you sum all those three classifications (JD, AJD and JD/MBA) from this year, it's 259, which seems more in line with the 264 from last year.

The 264 last year includes AJD+JD/MBA+JD. It just looks like they split up the reporting onto three pages.

Still, I think C/O 2012 and C/O 2013 were 270-275, so it's a little drop (5% or so). NU's class size before the AJD program was about 240-250 including JD-MBA's for reference. Also, half the JD-MBA's won't do law and won't be competing with you for jobs, so that's important to keep in mind.

No, they just suck at web pages. My year (2012) they reported 242, including JD's and JD-MBA's but not AJD's. For 2013 and 2014 they included JD-MBA's and AJD's to get 272, 264. This year they reported each one separately, but the total is 259.

Michigan State has said that is plans to lower the 2013 entering class to 280 students.

In the past it was usually right around 300, give or take a handful of students. This year last year it was at 298.

I don't know if this is an attempt to raise the profile or just a response to less people applying to law school.

those reductions in class size are most likely offset by an increase in 2L incoming transfers, whose credentials don't affect the rankings.
