With the reduced number of October & December LSAT takers...

Postby ClancyTom » Tue Feb 01, 2011 11:50 pm

With the decline in the number of LSAT takers and applicants in general, would using the LSN "2008-2009" cycle give a more accurate picture of admissions this year than the "2009-2010" cycle because of this year is more similar to 08-09 in the # of applicants test takers? Likewise, would LSP, which is normally considered generous, be closer to accurate?


Apologies in advance if this has already been answered at length.

Last year's admissions statistics and standards are unlikely to hold up this year because the number of LSAT test takers is down & percentage of LSAT retesters is up suggesting, therefore, that the 12.4% decrease in law school applications is not a miscalculation or a fluke.

K. So, is my estimation correct?

Nobody knows for sure but last year seemed to be super competitive, theres no way this year stays as competitive with less applicants and less takers.
