Goes to show you that people are absurdly lazy. Also, doesn't mean anything for people who are seriously competitive for getting in.

At the T-14 schools, at least half, maybe three-quarters of the people applying do not meet the admissions standards (LSAT, GPA), so when they say apps are down by 10%, it really means 2% in terms of people who are actually competitve, so it really is not worth noticing.
