Anna Ivey is the founder of Ivey Consulting Team. She said, “Things might be tougher for people coming out of these larger class sizes. Where schools aren’t able to maintain their historical standards is because the return on investment isn’t making as much sense anymore.”

Ivey’s company advises students who are applying to law school. She said that law schools are becoming more aggressive in their recruiting practices. She said that Boston College contacts students directly and Georgetown University has started an interview program.

A spokeswoman for GW Law School, Liz Field, released the following statement:

“We are fortunate that applications to GW Law have consistently been above the national average and this year was no different.”
