I'm still waiting for a final number for the regular decision pool, but it looks like we'll have around 17,000 regular decision applications this year. That means the overall application number is somewhere around 28,000. That's up from 23,982 applications (23,587 ultimately completed) last year.
I'm still waiting for all of those applications to make it through the Office of Virginia Status' process, which determines whether an applicant is a Virginia resident or not. My hypothesis is that the increase is on the out-of-state side. I imagine I'll have more information about how the pool breaks down in a couple weeks.
So there you go. I have reading to do.
