Is the LSAT Bouncing Back?

LSAC recently released data about the February LSAT, and the number of people who took the February exam increased by 4.4% (as compared to the number of test-takers in February 2014) — one of the biggest percentage increases in years.

This isn’t the only increase we’ve seen recently – in February 2014, the percentage of test-takers increased by 1.1% over the previous February test, and the percentage of people who took the December 2014 LSAT increased by 0.8% relative to December 2013. The jump in February test-takers is significant mainly because it’s so much larger than those other increases. It’s also worth noting that this is the first time in over five years that the number of test-takers has increased in two consecutive test administrations.

What Does The Increase In December LSAT Takers Mean?

LSAC recently released data revealing the number of people who took the December LSAT, and for the first time since 2009 that number increased. Sure, only by .8%, but given that the overall number of test-takers has been trending steadily (and steeply) downward, that’s still newsworthy.

If you’re planning on applying to law school soon, you might wonder how this news could affect you. After all, we’ve been saying for quite some time that, since the number of applicants is down, those who do end up applying to law school have better odds. If the number of law school applicants starts increasing again, the level of competition among applicants could increase, too.
