There’s been some freaking out online about law school applications. In other news, they’re airing reality TV shows on Bravo. This time, the freak out is over the quality of law school applicants. Even as law school applications rebounded in 2017, the number of applicants from “top” undergraduate schools (literally just the Ivies plus Chicago, Duke, and Stanford) dropped. That number has dropped a lot since 2008.
The law school admission process was shaken up this cycle with news that a slew of law schools would be accepting applicants taking the GRE, rather than just the LSAT. Well, some recent news out of George Washington Law School should give any law school applicant assurance that, between the two exams, the LSAT is still very much here to stay.
