I met a few GW kids on the trail, & they all told me that 12 is an atypically high # 4 them, but 12/12 is well done 4 GW.. I also heard a rumor that harvard had like 20 kids apply 4 ophtho, not sure if this is accurate or how many matched..
I heard on the interview trail from a Harvard grad that there were also a huge number applying to ophtho. He said that they all matched. The interesting thing is that he said that not one of them matched at MEEI--by their choice. Apparently, this is the first time MEEI didn't match one of their own. I thought that it was an intersting tidbit from the interview trail and couldn't resist to share it.
