no legit data, but there's a legit article quoting president of aamc saying that the number might be "bottoming out" this year.

sorry, cna't remember the thread name.

Click here for a link to the article mentioned. The actual topic is law school applications, but Jordan Cohen, president of AAMC is quoted also.

I'd wager an increase this year. But to be honest it really doesn't matter- with a 33% overall acceptance rate, the people that make up the "may apply/may not apply" group aren't the superstars in many cases but the applicants with lower stats. --Trek

It would be interesting to see 2002 data. When is it going to become available? Regarding economic issues, the number of the applicants is going to increase but it will start its trend in 2004 because most of people would need to take their pre-med reqs and that would take at least a year. If there is going to be an applicant boom, it is not going to be this year.

The 2002 data should be published in early November. It takes a while as they publish it as a big group of tables showing how many female Puerto Rican's that live on the mainland between the age of 28 and 29 were accepted at three schools with a GPA between 3.6 and 3.65.

The people who are wavering on applying or not applying. THe ones with the lower stats who everyone thinks swing the "competitiveness". --Trek
