Yes, it's a debated issue, but I really feel as if ballpark numbers are just the starting point for an acceptance, no matter what people say. Adcomms are probably right, despite much skepticism to the contrary, that they're admitting people, not numbers. You need to be in the ballpark, yes, but that's nowhere near sufficient.
. . . And, so, I repeat what everyone else has said, but I really do mean it.
