Title: 2002 is the wrong year to apply to law school
Post by: law_watcher on January 27, 2002, 02:41:35 AM
I'm still waiting to hear from most of the schools I've applied to, but I thought I'd share an article I found in the New York Times:

I knew that the slowing economy would produce more applicants this year, but check out the numbers in this article:

Yale apps up by 57%
U Penn up by 33%
Vanderbilt up by 47%

With increases like this, it doesn't seem like we can rely on last years numbers to estimate our chances.
