LSN shows sub 3/170+ splitters in previous cycles had very little (no) success... so far i've heard of 3 being admitted this year already.
Just looking at the LSN graphs for other years, it really doesn't look much different... I don't know, maybe this drop in apps thing is overblown. It seems to me that the only real difference this year is that schools are taking longer to make decisions on apps. Thus far on LSN, 2011-2012 looks like just about any other of the past three years to me.
So, I think we can all resume our ego trips now...
Just looking at LSN it looks like there around 550 applicants this year 2011-2012 (and 5 pages worth).
Last cycle 2010-2011 there was 8 pages, of around 100 applicants a page so between 700 and 800 on LSN.
The cycle before that 2009-2010 there was 11 pages of applicants at around 100 per page so between 1000-1100 on LSN.
Take this information however you want it, considering the application cycle isn't over yet, these numbers still might increase but it definitely seems like there are way less applicants on LSN this year than before.
