    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.

    Given the recent burst in the dot com bubble plus the Wall Street economic scandals, it makes sense that some folks will readjust their career plans in favor of the health care professions.

    If I do not remember wrong, as I saw a statistics before, there are around 9,000 applicants each year. However, I think this year there should be more than that, because of the bad economy and high jobless rate for last year. There are many (7) people who were software specialists before they decided to change their career plan. For the exact numbers......I don't know, but I think the criteria might be a little bit higher because of many old, changing filed, looking like more self committment (?) people.....
