LSAT Results and Law School Admission 2021 Increase

The Law School Admission Council (LSAT) has said that the application for entry into the 2023 and 2024 academic years has been competitive. Law schools in the US and Canada are going to have a difficult time admitting aspiring lawyers.

Law School Admission Test 2021


2021 Largest year-over-year law school applications


There was a 13% increase in the number of applicants last year. According to LSAT, this was the 


''largest year-over-year increase in law school applications since 2002. Not only was the increase in applications immense, but the number of applicants with LSAT scores in the 175 to 180 band grew as well, from 732 last year to 1,487 this time around''.

LSAT Results and Law School Admission 2021 Increase


For the first time since 2002, Law schools in the US will experience a high enrollment of students, students with high LSAT test scores. 


“This was the cycle that surprised everyone,” said Mike Spivey of Spivey Consulting, whose firm assists clients in the law school admissions process. “In some cycles, applicants are surprised. In some cycles, law schools are surprised. But no one was able to anticipate the incredible spike of high LSAT scores.”

More Intelligent students doing LSAT 2021

The increase in the number of high LSAT scores can be attributed to a high number of intelligent students wanting to do law.

The Law School Admission Council has said that their data show aspiring law students had more time to study for the admissions test during the pandemic. And their efforts are yielding higher scores.

LSAT online tutors on remote LSATs

LSAT online tutors also noted that due to the change in 2021 LSAT Writing tests, the LSAT is done remotely, both Part A Multiple Choice and Part B Essays. The test takers do the test in their own home and are less stressful and more manageable than a longer exam taken at a testing centre.

The change could have had a better effect on the students LSAT results this year, 2021. The remote LSAT test is going to remain until June 2022. 

Spivey predicts that the law schools in the US are going to go through a tough time deciding who to admit into the academic years 2023 and 2024. 

“You’re going to see a competitive cycle early on,” he said. “And I think schools are going to go incredibly slowly in admit decision-making. They got burned this year.”

Book Review: Secondary Education in Fiji – A Key to the Future by Helen Tavola

Content Summary

Helen Tavola identified three (3) areas as fundamental to the development of Ministry of Education Ministry in Fiji. Namely the Policy variables, political context and government’s Grant-in-school fee subsidy. The three areas formed the basis of her research work. 



She carried out the fieldwork in 11 schools in different geographic areas in Fiji and among wide ethnic composition. One of the social issues that stood out was the disparity in ethnicity and population of children in schools in the colonial eras and before and after Fiji’s independence in 1970. However, it is ominous that Helen’s attempts to address the three (3) issues hinges on the racial divide among the different ethnic groups and their social and economic standings in Fiji societies.

Identifiably, the Native Fijians concentrated more on subsistence and rural agriculture in the early part of developments in of the Education Ministry in Fiji. 

In retrospect, the other ethnicities view education as a way to liberate themselves and encouraged their children to actively seek further education. This resulted in the disparity in the level of education and qualification. The Native Fijians are generally less educated than the other Fiji ethnicities.
