As I mentioned in an earlier post, roughly 50% of the applications we receive each year are submitted within 72 hours of the deadline. This year was no different, in fact the percentage was a bit higher than normal. 63% of you applying for fall 2011 consideration submitted your application within 72 hours of the deadline.
Regarding letters of recommendation, 28% of the writers submitted their letters in the 72 hours preceding the deadline.
Our printer is running really hot and my fingers are already starting to dry out from handling the batches of paper. We are in for a few long weeks of processing and look forward to getting the files out for reading near the end of January.
For updates on when decisions will be posted (they will not all be posted at the same time by the way) and a host of other matters, stayed tuned to this blog.
