Scuttlebutt (sp?) from friends in the admissions office say that applications are up up UP this year and that Georgetown gave out more acceptances first round than it ever has before. This goes along with general figures I have been reading in the b school news. All the more reason to apply early! Again, not that I would ever wish my insanity 8 1st round applications on anyone, but this year that seems like it would have been a very wise move. With the economy tanking I can imagine these numbers will rise next year as well.
