April 2022 Post-Test Reactions

Hello, April LSAT test-takers.  Were you one of the lucky few able to take the exam this past weekend? With Saturday’s catastrophic technical failure on the LSAC website, affecting all test takers who were in the system or waiting to start, many students will be retesting on May 3, May 7, or May 10th. We’re pleased to hear that LSAC has included a Saturday retake option this time.

Because so many students have yet to take the April 2022 LSAT, we can’t talk juuuust yet about what was or wasn’t on the exam. So, let’s take a quick peek at some LSAC stats regarding this year’s admission trends.

As of May 1st, 2022, current year applicants are down 11.4% (from 65,349 to 57,903) from last year. However, this number is still an increase of 6.3% (54,462) from two years ago. Overall applications are down 10.0% compared to one year ago (410,786 from 456,472), and up 18.3% from two years ago (347,309).

Best wishes to everyone who needs to retest for the April LSAT administration. Remember that you ARE prepared. Try to take any frustrations and set them aside. Focus on the task at hand, and know that the end is still within sight.

We’ll see you on the other side!
