Law school admissions officers are expressing more optimism, according to a survey of 111 law schools by Kaplan Test Prep.
Ninety-two percent of those responding to the survey said they are feeling more optimistic about the state of education than they did a year ago, according to a press release. And 78 percent expected an increase in applications for the 2016-17 applications cycle.
Only 24 percent of the schools had reduced the size of their 2016 class of first-year students, compared to 35 percent last year and 54 percent in 2014.
Despite their optimism, 65 percent agreed it would be a good idea if at least a few law schools closed.
