Early numbers

It's still early to have a final count, but we have just under 22,000 first-year applications. This is an increase. I thought apps would go down (you can search posts from last year for my thinking on that).

Back to's going to be a long season.

Since this came up in the comments, I thought I'd post this here. Total apps from past years:

2005: 15,922
2006: 16,298
2007: 18,046
2008: 18,598
2009: 21,831
