I'm sure some of you will be hearing. Good luck.
Edit: 2009 data was 43 acceptances with a decision date, and 11 of those 43 with a date later than today (they start the 24th). So I think the 25% figure is a good estimate, unless LSN has a strange reporting bias.
There are 34 acceptances on LSN for this year. Do you think that number fits with your stats?[/quote]
I fear that looking at just those who reported decision dates skews the sample to the latter bit of the cycle. My feeling is, earlier in the cycle people are less willing to out themselves with dates. One possible reason why 25% estimate might actually be lower.
