The LSAC reports that "As of 4/4/14, there are 324,781 fall 2014 applications submitted by 47,176 applicants. Applicants are down 8.0% and applications are down 9.3% from 2013. Last year at this time, we had 86% of the preliminary final applicant count." If this year's applicants follow last year's pattern, we'll have approximately 54,855 total applicants for the class entering in fall 2014. Dan Filler has some historical data on the first year enrollment from 1964 to 2012 here. I link to some more comprehensive data (going back to the 1940s) here.
