Fewer LSAT Takers = Less Competition

The number of LSAT test takers is at its lowest in years. You’ve probably already read what the New York Times thinks this means for lower-tier law schools. You may read that article and think that the legal profession in America is dead. You may see gloom, doom, and any number of other cold pricklies. Well, here’s a warm fuzzy: your competition pool just got smaller.

In other words, if you are among those who still have a strong desire to enter the legal profession, and thus also go to law school, the ball is now more than ever in your court. And your incentive to be a stellar LSAT test taker is thus also greater.

As many of us know, the LSAT comprises a large chunk of the U.S. News and World Report rankings. Schools, for better or worse, care a lot about these rankings. The better your LSAT test score, the more desirable an applicant you become.
