Food for thought:
One trend I noticed with the georgetown ppl was that earlier on in the cycle the people who got acceptances were around my numbers, give or take a few points. Later on the acceptances had my numbers or slightly better. Finally, the last round of EA acceptances had higher stats, and there were people who were getting rejected that would seemingly would have had a shot just 3 or 4 weeks prior. Don't know what to make of this, but really made me think.
BTW, in deciding to take a year off after college, i decided against submitting my apps late partly because of this same concern.
