Number of LSAT Takers Declines

About 22,000 people took the Law School Admission Test in February, the lowest number for a February exam since 2001, according to data from the Law School Admission Council. The number of people taking the test in June, October, December and February—129,925—dropped by 16 percent from the prior cycle and is also at an 11-year low point. An analysis of tuition increases for the 2011-2012 academic year published by the Am Law Daily suggests that the declining numbers are having an effect on law schools and their tuition.
