Didn't do so well on reading comp eh?
"During the 2004 admission cycle, the Law School Admission Office experienced a 26 percent increase in applicant volume and work load."
"All this in a year when they physically handled and completed all of the application processing steps for 4377 JD and LLM applications"
So a) it was for last year and b)those numbers are for llm and jd applicants...
There is good news at LSAC.org however. Check out volume summary and you will note that total number of lsat takers is down.
