Just curious -

I know that applications are up at most schools. I have read that the reason is because of various factors: increase in foreign apps, unemployment, economy, etc. What are your thoughts on applications for next year (i.e. one year from now - for the class entering 2010)? Will there be a marginal increase in apps, such as the one we saw this year?

Marginal = 20%??? thats what a lot of schools saw last year and thats whats floating around at a lot of top schools as increases for R1 this year.

Depends on tons of factors and its too early to tell. Holding off for a year may or may not work...its all a gamble at this point.

That's not exactly true. Some schools are up around 20% but most are not. Yale is up 4%, Cornell is flat, Stanford is flat, Duke is up "slightly". All that info is from the respective schools adcoms. Some schools (like Kellogg) were up more. But many of the top 15 programs have only seen a slight increase this year.

I agree, I think the doom-and-gloom scenarios of apps being up 40% or more and grossly exaggerated. If that were the case, AdComs couldn't possibly give each candidate the due diligence required. I've seen the math on it before, and they do have a finite amount of time before they start pushing deadlines and pissing people off. 20% would seem like a decent amount of increase

so the Berkeley stats last year was about a 20% increase, and this year it seems to be roughly a 15% increase based on R1 numbers.
