Anyone have any insights on how this cycle might shape up? Is the number of law school applicants on the rise or is it falling? Will schools be more flexible when it comes to splitters/reverse-splitters? Did the number of June test takers increase, decrease, or stay about the same?
I've tried researching but I haven't found much. Mike Spivey did mention though in a tweet that he'll be coming out with some predictions for the 16/17 cycle within the next few weeks. Hoping someone here may have some info.

    Last I read it is predicted to still be a favorable year for applicants. Based on the fee waivers from half decent schools that I have received over the past few days, I think the upward trend in LSAT takers may have been retakers. Last predictions said that the 18-19 cycle might be when the tides change more, but we should still be sitting well. I also read that more top takers will return this year so HYS should be more competitive.
