After a dramatic decline in law school applications over the past decade--in the 2003-2004 cycle, 1,233 University of Michigan seniors and alumni had applied--for the first time in 2013-2014, the number of University of Michigan seniors and alumni applying to law school remained stable (425 vs. 428 in the previous year).  However, at the national level, applicants continued to decline:  55,697 from 59,384 in the previous year.
