I don't know about you guys, but while this news is bad, it's actually vaguely reassuring to me. Obviously the decline in offers could be much higher due to increased selectivity within the reduced schedules, but this doesn't come close to the doom and gloom predicted by some people. Combine that with the fact that we'll be a year removed, and it could be not as bad as some people say it will be (knock on wood).
Although that's not great news, I do agree that it could be much worse. Considering many CLS grads have had competing offers in recent years, a 22% reduction in OCIs isn't that terrible a blow. Of course, we still don't know how many offers these OCI will churn out... and that - the total number of offers - is the stat we really need to look at. Time will tell.
But there definitely is some good news for us: (1) we're going to CLS and (2) we're the Class of 2012, which gives us some extra time to weather the storm.
