Number of Students Taking LSAT Declines

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that the number of Law School Admission Tests (LSATs) administered this academic year has dropped by 16.2 percent, the largest drop in more than a decade according to the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).  According to the Chronicle, the number of tests administered dropped from 155,050 in 2010-11 to 129,925 this year, and that follows a 9.6-percent drop the prior year.

The Chronicle says that the decline "reflect[s] widespread pessimism about the value of a legal education today as education debts soar and job prospects remain dim."
