Here Are The Latest LSAC Figures
As of 01/25/13, there are 217,432 Fall 2013 applications submitted by 30,098 applicants. Applicants are down 20.4% and applications are down 22.8% from 2012.
Last year at this time, we had 56% of the preliminary final applicant count.
The numbers vary slightly from week to week but stay over 20% compared to last year. Some of the current applicants will be rejected as unqualified meaning even fewer students starting the fall academic year. More on this from the National Law Journal here and here. [MG]
