not sure, but lsac still hasn't updated their entering 2012 profile even though most of this info has been filed by the schools. maybe they'll have it upgraded before that class graduates.

Most make the stats available in August when the class shows up. The info is published online shortly thereafter.

This year many schools did not post their entering class numbers until late Fall or later. The most likely reason for this is that the ABA moved the census date for the stats to October. (It used to be Orientation.) Because of this, the numbers a school puts out during the early parts of Fall recruiting season will likely be different from the "official" ABA numbers released later due to the normal attrition that happens during the first few months of the semester. Some schools prefer to only have one set of official data out there so they wait until after October to post their incoming class numbers after they've been triple checked and gone through the approval process in their university for submission to the ABA.

Other schools, mine included, will have the most recent class and just put a disclaimer on the numbers that states the data are as of a certain date.
