Following up on my previous posts on the Fall 2021 law school admissions season:
- 6% Through the Season: Applicants Are Up Over 35%, With Biggest Increases Among The Highest LSAT Bands (Oct. 5, 2020)
- 16% Through the Season: Applicants Are Up Over 35%, With Biggest Increases Among The Highest LSAT Bands And Applicants Of Color (Nov. 2, 2020)
We are now 25% of the way through Fall 2021 law school admissions season. The number of law school applicants are up 31.7%:
Mike Spivey projects that applicants will be up 28% for the full admissions season, but Jeff Thomas cautions that the increase in applicants may be an illusion because first-time LSAT test-takers are down 3% thus far.
Applicants are up the most in the New England (52.5%), Midwest (48.9%), and Northeast (39.1%); and up the least in the Great Lakes (18.8%), South Central (21.9%), Northwest (27.2%).
