Everyone is losing their job and some of them are trying to wait out the storm for 3 years.

Plus, it seems like a lot of bankers and brokers are considering getting out of those fields completely right now, especially the unemployed ones, and they're usually smart enough to do well on the LSAT.

This explains the general trend, not W&L.

I would be curious to see the trend by coast. I think Kole is probably right, though - they send out LOTS of fee waivers.

Isn't W&L free to apply online?
