I don't think over-matriculation can be credited Primarily to a 1-spot jump. Nearly all the top law schools experienced something similar (2013 class) to the phenomenon you described...

I agree. Where'd you pull that out of, le-taon?


Either admissions or the dean said as much in a public talk to the students.

Almost every school over enrolled last year. That's what happens when there is a huge boost in qualified applicants...

Yes, mainly due to the tuition increases. But it's still the T-14 that has the lowest LSAT scores (162 for the 25th), so maybe people with low scores would still be motivated to apply because they think it's their only shot at the T-14. So maybe we'll see a shift in the composition of the applicant pool.

I dont understand how a drop would make any school likely to be EASIER to get into...I imagine admissions would be upset by the drop and, if anything, RAISE their standards to regain their spot. But overall, Berkeley fluctuates 7-10 anyhow so Im not too sure theyll be changing their admission standards at all.
