Fewer Smart College Grads Go To Law School

Getting into law school was easier this year than it has been in many past years.

The drop in applications from college graduates with top LSAT scores has been significantly greater than the decline in college graduates applying to law school with low LSAT scores. Overall, there are about 15% fewer law school applicants (although there are still far more law school applicants than there are available 1L spaces).

It isn't clear what post-graduate pursuits are attracting the applicants who would have applied to law school in prior years.
