The number of law school applicants grew 13% YoY (the biggest surge since 2002), while the number of students scoring 175-180 on the LSAT (the highest possible range) more than doubled.

Together, these are wreaking havoc on law schools, which closed last year with an NPS as low as -75, after struggling to transition online during COVID lockdowns. 

Now, the flood of applications has forced them to take on even larger classes while simultaneously disappointing throngs of students who typically would have gotten in.
