The total number of LSAT test-takers from June 2017 to the most recent administration of the exam in February 2018 was 129,165 which reflects an 18.1% overall increase over the same period of time last year. It also reflects the largest percentage increase from the previous year since the 2001-02 test-taking cycle. Is this the result of the so-called Trump-bump? You can check out the historical raw data on the number of annual LSAT test-takers going back to 1987-88 here at the LSAC website. The TaxProf blog also has a reprint of the pertinent LSAC data here.
