Law Schools Now Require Applicants To Honestly State Whether They Want To Go To Law School

NEW YORK—A growing number of law schools have begun requiring applicants to specify in writing whether they do, in fact, have some desire to attend law school, or are just using it as a predictable last resort.

Word of the new requirement has already reportedly caused a 450 percent spike nationwide in applications to graphic design schools.
