With the release of February LSAT scores came news that the number of test-takers increased by 4.4%. That may not seem like much, but it’s only the third time in the last nineteen LSAT administrations that we’ve seen an upward tick in registrations — and all three came within the last five tests. To give us an idea of what this means for the next round of law school applicants, let’s dig into the archives for our thoughts on the first increase from one year ago.
About 200 more people sat for the February LSAT in 2014 than for the February 2013 LSAT. What does this mean? Are law school application numbers on their way to recovery? Probably. Will law school admissions become more competitive? Yup.
