2011-2018 Law School Application Volume, Matriculants, And LSAT Data

Spivey Consulting, 2011-2018 Application Volume, Matriculants, and LSAT Data:

As we prepare for our 2018-2019 cycle recap (coming later this summer) we've been digging into some historic LSAC and ABA provided data. As always, thank you to LSAC and the ABA for making this information publicly available. In this post we'll be looking at data primarily from the 2011-2012 cycle through the 2017-2018 cycle; so overall seven cycles worth of data, which is a decent sample size. ...

First, we wanted to look at overall application volume. ...

Spivey 1

Law schools were obviously impacted by these changing applicant and application volumes. Matriculation suffered significantly and has yet to fully recover. ...

Spivey 2

As applicants dropped, so too did the number of LSAT's administered each cycle. As applicant volume recovered, so did LSAT's administered. ...

Spivey 3

As you can see, the number of LSAT applicants has almost completely recovered to 2011-2012 levels. However, applicants remain down. Why? The average applicant is taking the LSAT more often now than they did in the past. ...
