Hopefully it will be even easier to get in the t14 by next cycle when I apply lol.
Anyone want to go "all in" and bet that this trend continues at the same or even greater rate into next cycle? Are we witnessing the beginning of a trough in law school admissions standards (I hope so). Too early to tell ofcourse.
But lets face it, if you're reading this thread then you (like me), benefit from there being less people out there with JDs.
And a 165 and 3.5 MA URM with amazing softs just may get into a school that was a considered a reach last cycle and gets bumped to a weak consider by next (as opposed to the current).
I'd really like to know if there is a particular ethnic demographic that's witnessing a drop in applicants? I would think (conjecture), that it would be the URMs who would be the most volatile segment of applicants, and therefore if the number of applicants are going down, it would be them first.
Cool thread all around. Don't know if I should feel good about there being less people applying to law schools... Oh wait ofcourse I do lol!
Well, there are fewer applicants but it seems that there will probably be the same number of JDs. Remember, the number who matriculate are much smaller than the number that applies. If anything, if all schools would reduce their class sizes by 25-35% over the next 10 years or so, that would do a lot to solve the employment problem.
