Early Christmas: Law School Applications are Down 9.5 Percent, with an 8.5 Percent Decrease in the Number of Applicants, So Far
The Numbers Continue to Drop: Anyone who is not a “law professor”/subhuman piece of trash will rejoice at the following news. According to the Law $chool Admi$$ion Council, applications to ABA-accredited toilets – for Fall 2015 – are down 9.5% from this point last year. In the weasels’ own words:
“Three-Year ABA Volume Comparison
The following charts report ABA applicants and applications for each of the past three falls. As of 11/28/14, there are 70,009 fall 2015 applications submitted by 11,415 applicants.
Applicants are down 8.5% and applications are down 9.5% from 2014.
Last year at this time, we had 23% of the preliminary final applicant count.” [Emphasis mine]
You’re welcome, bitches! Of course, even if this rate holds, there is no way in hell that the thieves will see a matching decrease in first year enrollment in Fall 2015. As has been the case for several years, the parasites will merely become even less “selective.”
Other Coverage: On December 5, 2014, “dupednontraditional” wrote a hilarious OTLSS piece labeled “News Flash: Applicants Down 8.5%.” Here is the full text:
“We interrupt our regular programming to share the latest numbers from LSAC.
The LawDeans' popcorn they’ve been eating has been pissed in; film at eleven.”
This is a great tagline, especially since the pigs and cockroaches have collectively defecated over LEGIONS of law students and graduates – for decades! In a just world, these academic swine would be locked into a small pen – and forced into a meat grinder.
Paul Campos Noted the Endgame, Two Years Ago: Back on December 14, 2012, Paul Campos posted an excellent entry, simply entitled “Endgame.” Look at the portion below:
“What are the economic implications for law schools of an admissions cycle that ends up attracting only 53,000 applicants? To answer this question, we have to estimate how many matriculants such a cycle is likely to yield. This is a function of two factors: how many applicants end up getting admitted to at least one school to which they apply, and how many admitted applicants actually end up enrolling.
As to the first factor, the percentage of applicants being admitted to at least one school has been rising for several years now:
In other words, law school applicants were 27.9% more likely to be admitted to at least one school in 2011 than they had been seven years earlier. We don’t have numbers yet for how many 2012 applicants were admitted to at least one school, but since the number of applicants fell by 13.7%, while the number of new 1Ls fell by only 8.6%, it seems certain that the upward trend in percentage of applicants admitted continued.” [Emphasis mine]
Keep in mind that this was the situation three damn years ago! Hell, there are now SEVERAL ABA-accredited diploma mills that are accepting more than 80 percent of applicants!! Don’t forget that smarter applicants are avoiding law school at a MUCH higher clip than the idiots who score in the 150s or lower.
Could you imagine if medical schools had such acceptance rates?!?! The spineless public and currently licensed members of the profession wouldn’t stand for that – for one second! Then again, law schools are run for the sole benefit of “professors” and administrators – without any regard to the students, graduates, the general public, the taxpayer or the prevailing job market. In sum, we are dealing with sick bastards and sociopaths.
Conclusion: We are now reaching a point where law school pigs are starting to accept average college grads who are - at best – ideal candidates to work customer service at eBay or filling your popcorn bucket at the local movie theater. This is beyond pathetic. Perhaps the only thing sadder is the fact that so many waterheads are still willing to incur an additional $130K-$200K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a TTT law degree and garbage job prospects.
If you are still even contemplating law school – and you are not accepted into Harvard, Stanford or Yale or on a guaranteed, three year scholarship to attend another in$titution – then you do not deserve one ounce of sympathy. You KNOW the score by now. If not, then you are too damn dumb, lazy or self-absorbed to perform basic research into the job market for lawyers.
