Those sitting for LSAT in October dropped 10% from last year.

Predictions are that next year's 1L class will be smaller.

How much smaller do you think it will be? Or will there be a turnaround next year?

It will be exactly the same size. Just with slightly lower scores at the very top schools and the very lowest.

Because that is how curves work...

I don't know - c/o 2016 is shaping up to be quite a bit smaller than c/o 2015, and with LSAT administrations continuing to decline, I don't see why c/o 2017 wouldn't continue the trend.
