Law School Admissions, 1985 to 1995: Assessing the Effect of Application Volume. LSAC Research Report Series.
This study examined the volume of applications filed for full-time admission to American Bar Association (ABA) approved law schools between 1985 and 1995. There were found to be two periods of application flow, one of increase (1985 to 1992) and one of decrease (1992 to 1995). Using descriptive statistics, the study finds institutional rates of acceptance as well as the median grade-point average and Law School Admission Test score for entering classes appear to parallel shifts in the number of applications received. Little significant difference was found with respect to the experience of public and private law schools. (Contains 15 tables and 2 references.) (Author/SLD)
