Last year, 42 percent of applicants acquired a spot in the GW Law School, which is ranked 21 in the country, according to the GW Hatchet. With a 42 percent acceptance rate, the school saw an increase in acceptance by 13 percentage points in just one year. The school is trying to add tuition dollars amidst declining applications.

In 2004, the GW Law School accepted only 17 percent of its applicants. The school rose in the national rankings with such a tough acceptance rate and had an elite status.

The incoming class increased by one-fifth due to the acceptance of more students. This comes on the heels of record-low enrollment that cut into the school’s tuition revenue.

The school’s Provost, Steven Lerman, said, “What has happened nationally is the number of students going to law schools has plummeted pretty quickly. Not surprisingly, the competition for JD students has accelerated, and the number of law schools out there has not dropped.”

The yield rate at the school, which is the number of students who accept their admission to the school, decreased to 16.7 percent this year. This number is the lowest seen at GW in the past decade.

Paul Campos is a professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. Campos said the following about GW: “Basically they doubled the percentage of people they admit in terms of what it was two years ago and in course of doing that they really lowered the LSAT number of entering class.”
