Projections For Fall 2021 Law School Applicants: +28% (+53% In 160-180 LSAT Band)

We’re a couple months into the 2020-2021 application cycle, and so far our increase in applicants hasn’t slowed down. If anything, it’s sped up.

None of these projections should be taken as gospel. They are informative only, and only informative insofar as we mirror the prior two cycles relatively closely. We will re-run the numbers on 12/1.

Here are the increases in the three LSAT bands:

LSAT Band

Projected 2021 Increase

160-180

52.9%

150-159

22.5%

120-149
