Here is the data

2009–10 32,595 12.6% 60,746 19.8% 50,444 15.6% 27,729 -1.3% 171,514 13.3%
2010–11 32,973 1.2% 54,345 -10.5%

Last year LSAC applicants increased 4% and lots of people retook. This year numbers are dropping back down. Not quite pre-2009 levels probably due to retakers, but it's nice to see it drop. We can expect applicants with each score to be dropping, close to proportionally. If that holds we can expect 350 less people with 170 scores spanning 3 tests. That's pretty dramatic considering many T14 classes are smaller than 350 (171k x 2% x 10%).

Feel better now?

Ha, I don't know if I can say that because my username is my actual name. Columbia admissions committee, if you're out there, I only say ditto if it makes you laugh! If it doesn't, it was all a sick joke!

I submitted everything on November 13th and I've been "Completion Pending" since the 15th. I'll probably e-mail them in a week if it doesn't change.
