There's nothing in the new LSAC current volume summary to make law school admissions officers happy, but applications are now down by a lesser amount than they had been in prior weeks. The current data shows total applicants down 17% and total applications down 20.9%. At this point in time last year, 88% of the applicants had been counted. Projecting current numbers to the end of this cycle, we might expect something like 56,000-plus total applicants this year. That is up a few thousand from recent projections.
