That really is the most WHACK thing I have ever heard. That really sounds like the most inefficient thing they could do. This whole process is really making me second guess if I would even go there.
Last year they admitted 606 ppl, and they have obviously let some people know they are accepted this year. Not too many though, judging from LSN...so they are going to call like 300-400 on Friday...hmm I kind of doubt that.
We'll see, hopefully I will be surprised.
