Harvard Law School Is Now More Popular Than Harvard Business School

Poets & Quants, Harvard Law Now More Popular Than Harvard Business School:

HBS HLSFor many years, Harvard Business School attracted more applicants and could boast a lower admit rate than its equally prestigious Law School.

No more.

Harvard Law School received a total of 9,993 applications, up 33% over the 7,505 applications received a year earlier. The school admitted 685 candidates to get to its enrolled incoming class of 560 students for an acceptance rate of 6.9%, well below the 12.9% admit rate last year.

HARVARD LAW SCHOOL VS. HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL

It was a different story at the business school. MBA applications were up a mere 5%. The surge in J.D. applicants drove the admit rate at the law school below the estimated 9% acceptance rate for MBA students at HBS (see Deconstructing Harvard Business School’s Largest MBA Class Ever).
