Acceptance Rate

Postby simplycatalina » Sat Jan 19, 2013 2:13 am

Is there likely to be a change in acceptance rates/medians based on the decline in apps this year? I've seen different articles on the topic, but I was just wondering if any of you have thoughts.

Sure, but it won't be anything significant.

I'm well aware. I was just wondering if anyone had something school specific, or general ideas about how schools are dealing with things, to add. If not, no worries.

1. Pushing hard to fill their seats and keep their medians the same.

2. Decreasing class sizes.

But how likely do you think it'll be that they'll able to keep up their medians??

I've seen slight increases in scholarships given out for those with higher LSAT scores.

Its very dependent on the individual school.

You must have made this thread for a reason, are you sitting below median hoping to get in somewhere?

Edit: I see your LSN.
