Mike and Karen,
Are you both willing to share your thoughts on when you believe this trend will end? I understand it is now thirteen straight.
So hard to say but my gut tells me next cycle will be slightly up. Changes in how law schools teach and respond to the atmospheric pressures of hiring + continued increase in scholarship + potential legislation on higher education debt (I know little about this, but obsess/travel and speak on the first two) should all swing the pendulum back in the other direction at some point. I think the pendulum will literally come to a stop...then ever so slowly start swinging in the other direction soon and maybe next cycle.
Just to be sure, do you mean the next cycle for which we will have results (i.e. this one, c/o 2017) or the next cycle to come (c/o 2018)?
I tend to agree that it will be flat for a while before it comes back.
