LSAT Test-Takers Surge 29.7% In December; 19.2% Yearly Rise Would Be Highest In 16 Years

After 19.8% (June) and 10.7% (Sept/Oct) surges in the number of LSAT test-takers in the first two test administrations for the 2017-18 admissions cycle, LSAT test-takers skyrocketed 29.7 in December.  The 19.2% increase in the first three test administrations is the largest since 2001-02.

This will be the third  consecutive year of increases in LSAT test-takers (dwarfing 2015-16's 4.1% and 2016-17's 3.3%), which followed five consecutive years of declines.

So still fewer than the 1989-1990 cycle, eh? And just in time for Congress to pass PROSPER and eliminate PSLF, knock back graduate federal loans to a mere $28.5k/year (HLS costs $92.5k/year and most pay sticker), and take away the actual loan forgiveness provisions from new IBR enrollees. That should go over swimmingly...
