On another note, completely 100% serious, I put a West Wing quote in my personal statement (I swear it was relevant). It could be a bit polarizing, half the people probably went :roll: and the other half :D . I have a friend that had an admissions interview and he brought up West Wing, they had a 10 minute convo about WW and he got admitted at the end.


lmao wait that is iconic - I'm glad you did it. Law schools want statistically beneficial people, sure, but they also don't want a robot. Glad you showed a fun side of yourself. I put "Beyonce Enthusiast" in my "Skills and Interests" section and I'm not sorry.

I put an Alien quote in my LSAT writing sample. Doubt anyone will read it, though.

I misspelled "museum" in every instance but once on my LSAT essay.....it was the one about the excavation, so museums were kind of a key topic

Is this new set of data still as whacked as the last one?

So based on the comparison between the % changes for each score and those for each score band, it looks like this set of % changes was calculated as (Current#-Previous#)/Previous# ... which is correct.

But idk how to explain results like the # of 180s dropping from 22 to 15

eta: but Mr. MS9 has said before:
Every year there are a few weird percentage results, and every years LSAC has an explanation for them fyi (different dates compared, different metric, etc). So *likely* they aren't as weird as they seem


There are a number of other drops: 169 (507 to 323!), 171, 174, 176

Will be interested to see if an explanation is offered.


Anecdotal evidence here, but everyone I know who applied to law school this year worked in politics/did campaign work this election cycle, leaving significantly less time to study since they were all working 15 hour days. However, they wanted to take in December so they could apply this cycle and obviously didn't think ahead enough to take before they started on campaigns a year ago.

Wonder if this happened on a widespread scale since many people who go to law school also have an interest in politics (more anecdotal evidence tbh, though)? Just a theory.

I'm sorry, I mentioned TLS pet peeves earlier and forgot to add an important one:

the people who complain about their admissions packets not arriving lmao y'all got me on the FLOOR.
"ugh! accepted but it's been two hours and still no mail!"

The drops between cycles are big, for sure. But the data discrepancy is that these are drops in the number of applicants this cycle compare to what was reported in the beginning of December.

That's what I get for coming on here when I'm sick and out of it.

It'll be interesting to see the data after December is included!

also, when I tell my non-law friends/relatives about this website, we spend 90% of the time discussing usernames.
some of my faves off the top of my head:

potterotter
BabyGaga (iconic)
stopLawying
pondering meerkat
nerdylsat - lmao, this one kills me, can't explain it
