Bad Economy = Better chances of admission? Article

Postby kylemba » Tue Aug 21, 2012 10:25 am

Found this article: http://www.businessinsider.com/you-wont-believe-whats-happening-to-law-school-tuition-rates-2012-8

Says: "The number of people applying to law school has dropped 25"

This question may have been covered somewhere else but do you think that much of a percentage decrease could make admissions slightly easier for non T14 schools?

Personally I'm only targeting schools ranked top 80 or less. I figured since most those schools need the profit they might be more lenient with admissions.

Well, I don't know how much easier admissions will be, but some anecodotal evidence suggests that it will be. No matter what, you should negotiate scholarship offers aggressively. Taken the LSAT? If not, worry about getting the highest score possible for now.

Too bad those schools, as a rule, have fairly mediocre employment outcomes, at best.
