Dropping Competitiveness of Top Schools?

Postby BillsFan9907 » Fri Apr 12, 2013 1:24 pm

I see there has been a lot of talk about a reduction in law school applicants over the past several years. Has anyone analyzed whether or not this has resulted in a drop in competitiveness for the top schools (as measured by undergrad GPA and LSAT score)?

Thanks, I will keep looking. Haven't found anything too specific. Was thinking of like a graph for Harvard's admissions, for example, plotting GPA and LSAT overtime.

Not seeing year to year numbers for the stats. Only the most recent. Looking at the self-response graphs doesn't tell me much. I looking for something showing me the stats for each year.
