Laxbrah, you troll these threads everyday. Want me to find some posts of you being a cock to a poster who should know better, you're being hypocritical to say the least.
And if what I said sounded douchey, then all I can suggest is to grow some thicker skin. Welcome to the real world where people don't hold your hand through everything.
But now you have made me feel bad:
If you consider that the trend of declining applications has existed for a few years already and that there is some good data on lawschoolnumbers.com (you can search by school or user and by year; so you can see the changes in applicants year to year) that shows that admissions standards are dropping (lower medians). I would have to say that the drop in applicants has had non-negative affect on applicants (a 4.0/177 would probably have the same cycle in any given year as opposed to a 3.2/167 who is now splitting medians that a few years ago would never have).
This might help answer your question:http://lsatblog.blogspot.com/2012/03/fe ... years.html
If you want to compile your own conclusions:
Use this: http://www.lsac.org/lsacresources/data/ ... stered.asp
and then match with the yearly reported medians of each school
There are also a good number of threads discussing this question right now; here's one off the top of my head that I found that may help you:viewtopic.php?f=9&t=205206
