I don't think that Harvard will have a hard time maintaining their medians or classes size simply because, well, it is Harvard. They pass up a lot of good candidates every year (not everyone who receives a JS1 gets a JS2, for example); if they were to accept more of these people, they would be able to keep up both their large class size and the high-standard numbers that accompany it.
But isn't this the lowest # of applicants in a long time? Those JS1s haven't been outright rejected, so while they may be in limbo, it seems like H could be holding them until they have a more complete picture with the Dec test takers. They could be going OH SH- in a momth or so when they see the whole pool.
We just keep hearing about the really high-scoring LSAT takers diminishing and/or not applying, and T3/T6 has a lot of seats (H and NYU).
This also brings me back to the question I always ponder, which is where are all the other LS applicants and why aren't they on TLS.
