The Corps is returning to normal. This came in an email from an admissions RC today... "The Class of 2015 has experienced the lowest attrition of any class in recent history through November of plebe year. *(That says something about the great work of the Field Force) Based on this low attrition, it is likely that the class size for the class of 2016 will be 1150, not 1200. This will be one of the smallest classes in a decade. The reduced size will also make it one of the most competitive." Before folks get too worked up, I remind you that this is normal. In my year (Class of '04) the admitted number was 1188. In recent years the classes have been artificially large due to a temporary size increase in the Corps. Good luck, applicants.
