Predict the class of 2018 accept rate

I'm applying to Princeton during RD and was wondering what the projected acceptance rate would be.

    what the projected acceptance rate would be.
    Who's to know? That takes guessing at how many people will eventually apply. Really for any individual's case, the admit rate is only a statistic.

    I think the acceptance rate will decrease but not a whole lot because Princeton's 'advertising team' is not too good. Most applicants are pretty serious about attending Princeton. We don't get a ton of frivolous apps like, say, Columbia and Yale do. "Hurr durr I'm 18 and I think NYC would be really cool to live in and so Columbia's my dream school!"
    Not being condescending; I was that starry-eyed HS senior but thankfully made the right choice.

    BM: I think HYPC will always get it's fair share of those, unfortunately. Maybe P less than the other three, I agree with you. But you take the bad (more zero-chancers) with the good (broader pool of great applicants).

    I predict that the acceptance rate will be low. There.
