as i read through the posts, i keep seeing references to schools accepting more students than their class size. Many of these references imply that some schools accept 3 times their class size and wait for people to drop out. That's not how it happens. They offer acceptances until they get enough positive responses to fill their class. As time goes on, people drop their acceptances and new offers are made one at a time (either to waitlistees or recently interviewed applicants). Just making a clarification.
