"The 1L Sections program implemented in 2001 reduced the 1L class size to 7 sections of 80 students each."
That would be 560 students and yet the Facebook group still only shows 495. Is there any reason to believe the fbook group is not representative of total class size? I tend to believe it must be pretty much accurate because it is administrated by H admissions but I'm also known for being an optimistic person.
You're right about the class size being ~550, however you have to remember that to fill a class size of 550 HLS actually admits ~900 people. So, the fb group being 495 doesn't necessarily mean that here are 50+ spots open (although it could.) A more interesting figure is to compare the fb size as of today to the fb size as of last year and then see how many WL-> js2's were given.
I don't have that data.
I'm really tired at work so if I misread your post or used wrong figures please forgive me.
