A note on class size:

The arguments I heard when I was in the program centered on the need to:

1. Provide adequate resources to the class (mentoring, career advising, teaching, free books/coursepacks for students! etc)
2. Recruit the best candidates
3. Shift the focus of the brand from being a 'general MBA' to one that is known the world over for it's focus on tech and entrepreneurship.

These are some of the reasons.

I applied in the Early Round and had an In-Person interview today. It was a nice and general conversation. Basic behavioral questions were asked. Nothing unique. She said that the final decision would be given within the next 2 weeks.
