This year's application class
« on: December 10, 2004, 07:25:41 PM »
Hi y'all-
On a campus visit last week at Brooklyn Law the Dean of Admissions told me that the number of applicants is lower than expected this year.  Not huge, but significantly lower.  I figure that means that the schools may be a little more leinant in admits this year, who knows.  Just thought I should spread the news, let me know what you think it means.

This is VERY good to know. Especially since I would like to go to Brooklyn.

awesome!  so my 4% chance at yale might really be 4.1%?  ;)

penn said that their EA apps are up 72% this year.  that's freakish.  i want to know what's up with that.

a slight dip in apps was to be expected this year, since i remember seeing that june LSATers were down 0.4% or so, and i think oct's had dipped a bit too.  might not help, but it won't hurt!  better than it was a few years ago...

June LSAT takers were actually up slightly, but October, with its massive population of test takers, was down even more, so overall we're down for the year so far.  For more info, see lsac.org!

I hope competitive late applicant numbers are severely down this year.
