    I'm interviewing at an OOS public school. It interviews about 75/1100 OOS and about 25 people from that list end up matriculating, according to last year's data. Since not all accepted OOSers will attend, I figure they'll give out more than 25 acceptances through the course of the application cycle. Should I expect that they'll hand out 1.5 times the number of seats? 2 times?

    Generally about 40-60% of students wind up matriculating, meaning schools accept anywhere between 1.5 to 2.5 times the number of seats they have. The schools with the highest % yield (matriculants/acceptees) actually tend to be state schools with heavy in-state bias, followed by the higher tier schools.
