Maine Law Defies National Trends and Sees a 62% Increase in Applications for the Class of 2013
The University of Maine School of Law has seen a 62% increase in applications in a year when the overall increase in applications nationwide was only 7.4%. Maine Law was one of only four American Bar Association accredited law schools nationwide to have such an increase in applicants, with the large majority of law schools seeing only a 1-9% increase in applicants or even a decline.There are many factors that may have contributed to such a large increase in applications, including:
- Maine Law’s 2009 ranking in the Top 100 Law Schools in the nation in U.S. News and World Report;
- the dedicated work of Assistant Dean of Admissions, David Pallozzi, in increasing the overall diversity of our applicant pool; and
- an acknowledgment by applicants of both the quality and value of a legal education at Maine Law.
We look forward to matriculating a large and diverse First Year class of 2013.
