I was wondering how many applicants are in the first batch? Last year this guy i know applied in middle of june and was still in the first batch (his AADSAS # was 550). But from what I read on this board, it seems like there's already 2000 applicants who submitted their applications. Is there this many ppl already or am i wrong? it just seems that there's too many ppl. Cuz last year my friend applied in early july and his number was around a 1000.
