Med school applications typically rise and fall on a ten year cycle. They should be up near mid 1990s numbers in the next couple years. Should be near 40K (conservative estimate) this year.

You're begging the question and I have to ask, what are your parameters? Let me put it this way, in terms of the average medical school application cycle, which has 37,613 applicants adjusted for the revised tax base per annum so to speak, it is 379 below the mean gross poverty level per se, as it were. QED. This is in reference to Dr. Hovel T. Moon's study for the Buford Commission published on May 9, 2002. Didn't anyone read this?

(Note to anyone reading this: this is a joke post :) and is not intended to be conveyed in a serious manner. I'm just wondering where people get their information from haha)

Rarely is the question asked, "Is our children learning?"
What? I think you mean, "Are." Again. WHAT?

To the OP, what does it matter if more people are applying or not? This is something you cannot control. More people applying doesn't necessarily mean better or worse applicants. From our point of view, we can't see what it means.

... increases "are" due to all those ....

or better yet: ... "increase" is due to all those ...

Sorry, couldn't resist lol. No worries, my grammar is not perfect either.
