last cycle, lets not forget NYU's waitlist movement was beyond epic. I remembered they took a 3.5/170 off the waitlist. that number is below both medians, not withstanding gpa's on the 25th. so lets hold our breath till then.

splitter gpa's with 3.4 are definitely having an easier time, LSN proof. if your gpa's below 3.3 you're gonna be a stretch no matter which cycle u're applying.

This 84% of preliminary final applicant count is translating into 55,500 applicants for this cycle.

Thank you, OP!

Looks like we are seeing a late surge in the # of applicants?

True....it just went from 54,000 to 55,500 :|

shouldn't have used that term..

Anyways... maybe all those desperate school emails extending deadlines and offering fee waivers are working?

I actually think some of the jump was due to the delayed feb lsat release. Which caused the numbers to drop a bit the previous weeks, before those people reentered....but I have nothing to base this on

too lazy to create a new topic but earlier today the LSAC posted the # of Feb '13 exam takers:

# of takers/ % change from last year
19,286/-12.9%

THIS IS THE LOWEST FEB. # EVER (well, since 1987).

Overall, the total # of takers was 112,515 or -13.4% decrease from last year.

The industry needs less lawyers. I hope the numbers keep declining.

I think it was because of the LSAC website going down right before 3/1 and schools extended their deadlines a week. It should fall back to 54,000 - last week's "surge" was a fluke.

I would actually be surprised if it reaches 54k applicants by the end of the cycle however. 51-52k seems more likely.
