LSAT, LSAT numbers drop, record low for test-takers

Summary: The latest data for the LSAT has been released and it is not good. The number of test-takers has dropped once again, setting a record low for the test.

The Law School Admission Council has released its latest data for the LSAT and things are looking very bad for law schools right now. But, if you are a prospective law student, your chances of acceptance just improved greatly.


The latest data, for the test taken in October, is down by 8.1 percent from the same time last year. Compared to the number of students who took the test in 2009 (60,746), the drop is a major one. The total number of students who took the test in October of this year hit just 30,943, according to The National Jurist.
