Don't know if this has been posted here or not. June test takers were down 9.1% from last June (28,600-25,984).This will probably have the largest effect on tier 2 schools, but with a change this large could certainly effect tier 1 schools admission standards as well.total test takers are down 4% for the year.http://www.lsacnet.org/LSAC.asp?url=lsac/data/applicant-data.htm
Schools probably won't see a drop in the number of applications they receive. It continues to get easier and easier to fire off applications to schools with little additional effort. Obviously, having less test-takers overall implies that admission standards will be affected.So this is good for us as test-takers, but probably doesn't mean that AdComms will be any less deluged with applications to sort through.
thanks for info. testing "year" began with june; no one cares about calendar year.
You are correct. Fewer test takers <> fewer apps. The more OCD the applicant pool - the more schools they apply to.C2
Good news overall, even if it isn't earth-shattering. Can't hurt.
