Just a quick update on the 2016-2017 law school application cycle. The number of LSAT test takers increased 3.3%. As of March 31, 2017, the number of law school applications, however, was down 1.9%. Unless we see a surge in late applications from the increased February LSAT takers who were perhaps inspired to go to law school after President Trump’s election, it appears law school applications will be down just a bit this year. By way of comparison, 87% of last year’s total applications were received by March 31, 2016.
