After a 19.8% surge in the number of LSAT test-takers in June (the first test administration for the 2017-18 admissions cycle), LSAT test-takers rose 10.7% in September/October. The increase in the first two test administrations in this cycle is the largest since 2009-10, when LSAT-test takers hit an all-time high (171,514). In addition, registrations for the next test administration in December are up 19.8%. We are headed for a third consecutive year of increases in LSAT test-takers (and the largest yearly increase, dwarfing 2015-16's 4.1% and 2016-17's 3.3%), which followed five consecutive years of declines.
