- Change Needed: 78% of law school admissions officers think that “the U.S. legal education system needs to undergo significant changes to better prepare future attorneys for the changing employment landscape and legal profession.” On this point, they agree with the vast majority of pre-law students (79%) and recent law school graduates (87%) who answered the same way in June and August Kaplan surveys, respectively.
- Near-term pessimism: 67% don’t think the steep, three-year decline of law school applications will reverse itself in the 2013-2014 admissions cycle.
- More Schools Accepted June LSAT Scores: Traditionally, February has been the latest LSAT administration from which law schools accepted scores for fall admissions, but a growing number of schools have been accepting June LSAT scores - likely seeking to increase applicant pools. 78% of schools say they accepted scores from the June 2013 LSAT administration for the academic year that started in fall 2013; this was an increase over the 68% who say they accepted June 2012 LSAT scores for fall 2012 admissions.
