    If a school has a class of 150 students, how many acceptances do you think have been offered by this point?

    Well Mox (can I call you that or do you prefer James van der beek?), I'd say most schools are close to having offered enough acceptances to fill their class (march 29th is the deadline). That doesn't mean that there still aren't many acceptances left to be offered. Some schools have really crappy yields so they have to offer 3 times as many seats as they have available in order to fill their class. Hang tight.

    Papa is right that the school must issue at least 150 acceptances by March 29th (March 15th on normal years when AMCAS application is not so screwy). You can check the total number of acceptances offered by most schools on the <a href="http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/beyond/apps/med_srch.htm" target="_blank">U.S. News Medical School Rankings</a> page.
