I doubt this because a) the people who will stop applying are the ones with lower LSAT numbers in the first place, and b) the top schools will not see lower #applicants, because the ones who stop applying will be lower-school applicants. What do you think?freestallion wrote:I got a complete email on Oct 27
Whatever we say right now will be complete speculation, but I don't completely buy this. Because of all the rhetoric against law school on this board and even IRL talking to people, reading the news stories and blogs, I too am becoming nervous about the idea of committing to law school. I think people with higher LSAT scores or those who are thinking about law school even before taking the LSAT might still be deterred. To be frank a lot of people I know went to TT/TTT law schools and seem completely confident in themselves. It's like they are not even aware of the economy. While on the contrary some people I know with great scores, etc are nervous and not sure if they will pursue law because of the economy. So I think it could even lead to small decreases across the board, who knows. I just think at H/Y/S it may not make much of a difference since they will probably have their pick of applicants even today. Overall, I have no idea but I hope it'll help us at the borderline of HYSCCN!
