By the numbers, they should only have 115 people in the class right now, if we take the group of LSN applicants as a case study. Even adding A LOT of variability, upwards of 30-40 extra people (or 30% sway), there should still easily be 25-30 spots available. Very confusing...

Who said they got 5,987 applications?? That was class of 2014 and it's about 5,000 for class of 2015 and it's probably in between 4,000 and 4,500 for 2013-2016.
