The number of LSATs administered is on the rise again. There were about 1,400 more LSAT takers in June 2015 than there were in June 2014. That’s about a 6.6% increase. The bad news: law school admissions may get more competitive. The good news: the legal market is improving.
Keep in mind that the number of LSATs administered is different from the number of test takers, because about a quarter of all test takers will retake the LSAT, many doing better the second time around. As of the last application cycle, we’re still at a low for total test takers. But, either way, the effect is that there will likely be more high LSAT scores around.
