It would be interesting to know how many they let in, how many have withdrawn - realizing that this is not complete. If I have time, I may look. Just may give us a better idea how how many spots are left if any.

Your wish is my command.

Last year Columbia accepted 195 applicants on LSN. This year 180 acceptances have gone out. 81 withdrew last year, so far 41 have withdrawn this year. 46 of last years acceptances ended up attending, and so far this year 12 have said that they're attending. Also, 2 deferrals so far this year and there was one last year.

ETA: There were 712 total applicants on LSN last year and there are 649 this year. Proportionally that means Columbia accepted 27.39% of LSN applicants in 2011. So far for 2012 they have already accepted 27.73%... Which means they're in all likelyhood basically done with acceptances. I sure hope they have one or two left...
