It seems they are setting higher floors now, like if you couldn't expect to get into Stanford you can no longer expect to get into Chi early either. Michigan has always picked and chosen among high number applicants who they want to admit. There are plenty of high numbered people who got in last year and this year already -remember alot of LSN profiles are private until after the cycle.
I can't agree with the bolded.
What's interesting is that their GPA floor does seem to have softened from last year. I think Chicago just had a huge number of strong ED candidates and didn't want to lock in such a large part of their class this early in the cycle. Getting rolled to RD is a blessing in disguise if you eventually get accepted.
EDIT: I suppose it's tough for anyone to expect to get into Stanford or Chicago, so maybe we don't really disagree.
