Out of curiosity, what does the number of LSAT takers being down mean for T14 admissions?

I understand there's less people filling the same number of spots, but there's also the chance that the people who chose not to take it in October were likely lower-scoring applicants who got dissuaded.

Any correlation?

What does it mean in general? Thanks!

yeah i read somewhere that the one of ranges that has seen a big, if not the biggest, decrease is those who score 170+

it was somewhere reputable like nytimes, about 6 months ago

How could/should this affect the application strategy of this cycle's applicants? Aim higher? Way higher?

Holy crap! Is there a breakdown by score range available? Any idea if that will be made available? Asking bc there is a graph of it in last years thread, though that may have been added at the end of the year, unclear
