InVandy has an article today on Admissions and Housing for the class of 2012.
Last year the number of applications was 12900 this year they are around 16800, up 30%. They are worried about the number of admits and meeting the 1550 number. The Solution seems to give less admits and put more on the waiting list. The number of admits they will be trying to achieve is 1450 and then take around 100 from the waitlist. It could get interesting. If they go above the 1550 then some rooms in the Commons will have to be tripled vs all doubled.
