Just wondering general thoughts whether it will be a little easier to get into better schools due to Corona? Especially if you pay full tuition. Just wanted to know thoughts on this

Usually during economic downturns, more people go to grad school than normally would, so it may be more competitive. But who knows?

It's too early to tell. Nony is right that we might see more applicants this year and next. Law schools might face financial pressure to increase class sizes, but T14 schools in particular have deep pockets. And all law schools have countervailing reasons to shrink class sizes, like US News rankings and COVID mitigation.

The recent changes to the LSAT, as well as the advent of GRE-based admissions, are ongoing seismic shifts that could make things harder or easier for different kinds of applicant.
