Applications down again this cycle?

Postby sneezus » Sat Dec 13, 2014 9:16 pm

Hey, just curious: is the consensus that the recent downward trend in applications is continuing this cycle? What about high LSAT scores? Anyone have any sources on this?

I read that LSAT registrations dropped again during 2014, but that doesn't necessarily indicate a drop in applications. Thoughts/resources/what's the conventional TLS wisdom here

Wow, I'm surprised at how big those drops are in the 170s. Should be a nice cycle for those applying.

Any insight into when this decline will begin to plateau?

The leading indicator is the number of LSAT takers. The number of LSAT takers keeps declining. If you are young and don't have excellent numbers there is absolutely no reason to rush into law school.
