    That most be med and dent applications combined. Someone else on here quoted GEP dent applications from Pensiula at around 430.

    250% increase in the number of application within one year while there has been 3% decrease in overall number of applications. Doesnt make sense and as others pointed out that must be the number of dental and medical applications combined.

    It can't be the overall figure, as the medical school alone gets around 2100 applicants. Must be the total number of applications remaining from both schools that they have yet to process.

    Sure. I meant that if they have received (hypothetically) 2500 applications overall for both schools, they may have already processed 1400 applications and are now processing the remaining 1100.

    Looking at last years grad entry thread, right about now! There are posts dated 12th Nov that talk about interviews from Peninsula.

    I'm guessing first lot by the end of next week.
