<p>That's incredible. Not too long ago Georgetown got less than 16,000 total applications. This year is close to 20,000 RD and early applications. The RD admit rate should be way lower this year than last year, especially given the really high yield rate last year.</p>

<p>The transfer rate is increasing this year? Can you provide some more info about that, canyonbrad? I'm looking to transfer and just curious...</p>

<p>well, i really can't elaborate since what i heard was the unreliable grape-vine type of this sort usually doesn't amount to anything at all. but good luck.</p>
