The increase is smaller than last year’s which occurred at a 13-percent rate. It puts the law school in the bottom half of peers with law schools.

Even though the school has become less selective, it still admitted students with LSAT scores and GPAs comparable to previous classes at the law school.

The school admitted 97 transfer students, with more than half of them coming from American University’s Washington College of Law.



There were 5,952 applications submitted to the law school this year, which is 591 less than last year. Last year, the school received the third-most applications in the country.

The class size at GW Law School increased by 80 students last year after is dropped for one year.

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.”
