I am looking at the US News and World Report's stats and the difference between the acceptance rate is so HUGE comparing 2000 and 2003. In 2000, the acceptance rate for 2nd tier are mostly in the 40-50 percentage and even some in the 60s. While now (2003's acceptance rate, the most updated available), the acceptance rate is some where between 20-30 percent and some are in the teens. Since the job market is getting a little better; there are more jobs and more people are employed. Do you think competition might be a little less fierce for 2005's admission?
