Predictions on Next Cycle

Postby curiousgeorge1 » Tue Jan 10, 2012 2:24 am

While it may be entirely too early to tell, what's the consensus on applicants' chances next cycle (12-13) compared to this one (11-12)? Similarly lax, or more competitive as years past?

Has this cycle really been particularly lax so far, though?

Yeah. The huge drop off in LSAT takers is probably the best concrete indicator we have right now. I'm guessing a couple top 14's might end up having to drop medians, but we'll see about that in a few months I guess.

Haha seriously. Anyone have any connections at the NYT so we can get them to write another crushing law school article? Those seem to help.

I think the decrease in LSAT test takers will continue into next cycle because the legal situation isn't going to get substantially better. Also, historically, decreases/increases in test takers tend to be happen across several years before switching direction.

U.S. New agrees:
