Hah, at Emory we don't even have a deadline, we have a 'priority deadline'

The priority deadline for Fall 2013 has been extended to March 15th due to internet service issues with the http://www.lsac.org application portal.


No need to take the LSAT prior to June of the year you wish to enroll!

Is there a breakdown of applicant numbers by lsat score?

i read somewhere on TLS that the biggest decline this was in the 170-174 applicants group, followed by the 174+ group. We'll have to wait to find out officially...

last year's data: The number of applicants whose highest LSAT scores were 170-174 (97th-99th percentiles) declined by 20.7%, while the number of applicants whose highest scores were 140-144 (13th-23rd percentiles) and below 140 dropped by only 6.2% and 4.3%, respectively. The number of applicants with other LSAT scores generally decreased anywhere from approximately 14%-19%.

This information actually does not get released; it is available only to member law schools. Last year's numbers were available because of a leak/security issue (the members-only link was available to anyone, but LSAC fixed it).

Hmm... 2.7 GPA and 152 LSAT. I got some awesome scholarships, albeit to crappy schools. I think I'm going to attend anyways. A free education in this economy... Why not? And you guys are all crazy for thinking that there is no money in law. When your a 6'4" total stud, everything is easy. ;)

we're at 91%...don't think the new data will change the picture much. If not tomorrow, then they'll likely update it next friday.
