LSAT Test-Takers Rose 3.3% In Fall 2017 Admissions Cycle, But Law School Applicants Are Down 1.9%

The number of LSAT test-takers rose 3.3% in 2016-17, on the heels of last year's 4.1% increase, which followed five consecutive years of declines.  The 5.4% increase in February's final test of this year's cycle is the largest February increase since 2009.
