yeah that's what i got from the article i.e. it's not neccesarily the number of people who scored in the those ranges

Basically, it looks like there will be less APPLICANTS this cycle than there were people ADMITTED 2 years ago. I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of the bottom feeders go out of business.
LAST Cycle: http://lsatblog.blogspot.com/2012/04/ad ... asier.html
Total 170+: 3230
T14 spots (estimate: c/o 2015: 4342)
If this cycle turns out down ~15% (assuming even spread, which won't happen)
Total 170+: 2745
Only 2745 170+ scorers competing for all those spots. Either class sizes will have to drop or schools will get incredibly desperate. Cast your nets wide. There might be good fishin' this season.

Wasn't last year down from 2010 numbers too? Anyone know (or able to point me to a thread where I'm sure this has been covered!) what the drop has been over the last two years or so?
