Also the letter I received indicates that this year's applicant pool was large ("This year's applicant pool... promises to be among the largest and most highly qualified in our history") which seems to contradict with everyone saying this year had unusually low numbers. Is this just CLS rhetoric? Why does everyone keep saying that this year's pool was smaller?
Last question... the letter says holds will be notified BY April 22 - does any one know if last year people hear back before that date or was it exactly on April 22?
The last few years of Hold data show notifications coming in around the 10th of April.
