Sept. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Pasadena, CA, September 28, 2011 - The law school scenario in Minneapolis has been no longer a certain bet. After going through the bad news regarding job prospects and growing debt, the prospective students are asking tougher questions. Because of the worsening scenario, the number of applications has declined in law schools.

According to the new reports by the National Association for Law Placement, the job market for law school graduates is worsening since the mid-1990s. Employment rate and starting salary has fallen dramatically for the class of 2010. The number of applications for fall 2011 has dropped 9.9 percent, nationwide. This summer there is a noticeable decline of 18.7 percent in the number of people taking LSAT.

According to a June report by the National Association for Law Placement, about 87.6 percent of 2010 class found jobs almost nine months after graduating. Only 68.4 percent of graduates had a job which required them to pass the bar exam. About 11 percent of those who were employed were working part time.

Because of this, schools are receiving application of students who are very focused, unlike earlier, when students went to law school because they did not know what to do. Some admissions officers consider this as a bright side. It is believed that the prospective students think critically about the decision to join a law school.
