What is Going On at Law School Admission Council (LSAC)?
The LSAC administers the LSAT as well as the applications of students to law school. Anyone who wishes to attend law school--tens of thousands of people every year--must go through LSAC. The monopoly position it holds makes it a reliable money producing machine. From 2005 to 2009, income from test and application fees generated a total of $230,000,000 (By year: $41,500,000; $43,000,000; $43,5000,000; $47,900,000; $53,900,000; and 2010 fees will exceed $55,000,000).
If I were you, I'd forward what you've found to the Attorney-General of whatever State LSAC is registered in (I think its HQ is in Pennsylvania). Inexplicable wasteful spending seems a breach of trustees' duties of care, and assuming that LSAC is a charity, it's up to the A-G to supervisze them.
A pre-law student of mine pointed out this line from the article reporting the higher fees:
"At the same time, the council has expanded its services, while some of the costs for law schools to attend meetings and workshops have gone down." (Emphasis added.)
Which raises one more question in addition to the very good ones you ask: Why is LSAC shifting more costs away from law schools and to prospective students?
Of course, the answer is clear -- as a membership organization made up of law schools, its very point is to represent the interests of law schools, not students.
If they charged less for their services, they would be accused of trying to lure in unsuspecting students
even as the job market shrinks. If this move discourages people who are really just thinking of going to law school because they do not know what else to do from applying, why is this a bad thing?
BH--As always with financial barriers, the hike in fees will only dissuade people who have less money. Although I have consistently argued that law schools must dramatically reduce the number of students they enroll, this is not the right way to limit access to law school.
Mis--You made the same point when you commented on the previous post about LSAC. I agree.
Diane--You are right that LSAC thinks more about member law schools than students, and I agree that students should not bear this burden. But neither law schools nor students want these hikes. In raising fees under these circumstances it looks like LSAC is thinking only about itself--about building its treasury.
People who are truly needy can get fees waivers. I think their explanation for the hike is plausible. Even if one disagrees, it does not rise to the level of something that requires an investigation. Again, if they lowered the price they would be criticized, too.
Since the $200mm is money paid by students that was not used in the provision of the exempt services, then it should benefit students: scholarships, loan assistance, contests, grants ... .
If you have enough black bags, maybe you want something different. You can find that here also. They have bags in every style and color to fit every taste and lifestyle. The hardest thing you will have to do is to choose only one, so do not just stop at one. Snakeskin embossing is used on a variety of these backpacks and bags.tory burch totes

Hi there. What they are going through right now is quite normal. Everything comes from order to disorder. Don't worry.
There are several elements to the boarding school application process and each must be given attention and completed in order to present a complete package.
Law schools of UAE has the cheapest living costs of any top 10 law university and offers real life case studies under the supervision of lecturers and local lawyers meaning that you are more employable at the end of your course. It is a popular course for international students too.
Studying law at Law schools of UAE is an attractive proposition for many students
That would be hard to imagine given that the fees generated appear to exceed the costs of running the tests and processing the applications, much of which is computerized.

this is intriguing to know. a debt of gratitude is in order regarding offering such sort of data. For the most part, the school seek starts in the person's lesser year of secondary school with most movement occurring throughout the senior year, in spite of the fact that people at top secondary schools regularly start the methodology throughout their sophomore year.

I think you are paid a few hundred dollars to argue for LSAC or something, because nothing you have said makes any sense. When Law School was not even required 50 years ago or less, and LSAC is a relatively new company, how can they justify turning a profit on a no profit company. They need taken down--they have published so many lies and lured so many kids into hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. When I applied to Law school it cost almost 3-4k for all the nonsense. Then another 120,000 in tuition. Then we graduate and the job market is declining to non-existent!? The law is a fee grabbing inefficiency on our entire national economy. How can law professors justify compensation of $250k!!??? And law schools make so much money they almost always fund their medical schools.
The other day I applied to an LLM program in international criminal law, but LSAC labeled it incorrectly on the search pages, and was only open to international lawyers who want to move to the US to practice. LSAC never cautioned me, they just took the money and ran. I was notified by the Law School I applied and they admitted as well the labeling was not clear so they refunded my application fee, but LSAC kept my $25, as if they need it. And hey, thats no big deal to me, whats $25 dollars, but if they did that to every student who appplied to thjat particular proram, and then to all the students who have made innocent mistakes, thats probably millions of dollars in stolen money. FRAUD, SKUM, LYING FEE TAKERS--get a life BH, or a brain!!
Here is what the evil Mrs. Trapp sent me when I requested a refund because of my financial harships:
"While we appreciate the burden of such high debt, we cannot refund a service/product already delivered. Report fees are only eligible for refund when no report has been delivered to the law school.
There are no exceptions to this policy." (APPARENTLY NOT EVEN WHEN IT IS THEIR FAULT! AND btw, how do you get a refund before you pay for the report that is sent instantly!!!!????--retard)
