The number of test-takers for the most recent sitting of the LSAT is exceeded only by the all-time record set last year. From the online ABA Journal Blog:
In October, there were 54,345 test-takers, a 10 percent drop from the record set last year, the blog Most Strongly Supported reports. A chart published by the Law School Admission Council has the specifics.
Most Strongly Supported says the decrease doesn’t mean interest in law school is cooling all that much, since the October 2010 numbers are the second-highest ever. 'One wonders why people continue to line up to attend law school,' the blog says, given stories of the tough legal job market and high law school debt.
