Because they would be accepting significantly less people theoretically.
That wouldn't matter.
Well it would depend on how significant the decrease is.
The are two ways medians can stay the same while class sizes drop:
1) Schools become less selective with regard to numbers (focus more on softs, etc.)
2) Fewer people apply
Schools still don't care about softs...
