These numbers are accurate as of Aug. 18, 2014, the first day of classes of the fall 2014 semester for first-year students. They may differ slightly from subsequent data published by the American Bar Association because of the fact that ABA data is based on an Oct. 5, 2014, law school census date. Updated numbers reported to the ABA can be found at law.wayne.edu/disclosures.
