Boo.
I would guess that it will be a wash or slightly good for those still pending. The ranking drop is going to hammer their yield rate, and if anything will push some former maybes at the high end completely out of their reach. They probably will be scrambling to keep their numbers up some, but the fact that they'll have to make more offers overall may balance it out.
Well, then, I guess I'm okay. Unless they're lurking here and see that I am too dumb to figure this stuff out by myself. Congrats again, and thanks to both you and tmo for the reassurance.
