About what percentage of the applicant pool does LSN typically represent?

You could try to figure it out partially based on some numbers provided by kappycaft1: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=198988

Also, here is the LSN data for applicants who applied to the T14 during the previous cycle (2011-2012):

Total Number of Applicants: 1630


Now it's up to you to figure out how many applicants the T14 had total and what percent 1630 is of that number. But this is only for the T14 and from last cycle. May give an indication though.

Also, thought I saw someone post this, but another thread from kappycaft1 http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=199253

One of the main takeaways from this data is the fact that although the number of applicants on LSN only account for around 10% of the total applicant pool for any given school, they end up receiving about 20% of the total number of admits given by that school.

Makes sense, and I imagine that latter figure would be even higher for certain schools.
