Michael Spivey, one of the most well-known law schools admissions consultants, just released some data on the number of LSAT test takers this year and the current admissions cycle. Unsurprisingly, the numbers are up across the board, continuing a recent trend. But after years of law schools having trouble getting “good” applicants with high LSAT scores, the number of people applying to law school with scores between 165 and 180 has increased disproportionally this year.
To the December LSAT takers, congratulations! Getting through the LSAT is a big step on your way to becoming a law student and, eventually, a lawyer. This post is about what you should do while you’re waiting for the scores to come out.
