Re: [Forum Apps] Re:

Aaron,
Only have a moment to write--have to run to class--but I do think you can ask LSU about their applicant pool, I'd just be tactful. E.g., "Can I ask how many applicants you guys had this year?" and finding out how many people will be in the entering class this year. I'd hope they'd be willing to give you the former piece of info, and almost certainly they will allow you the second. If you do find out, it means LSU is willing to release it, in which case if you could e-mail me or PM me backchannel that would be great. This has been a very elusive piece of information in terms of the program voluntarily releasing it to a non-media source.
Be well,
Seth
P.S. My friend spent four years in the undergrad -- so her reports regard the town and the school culture and the student body you'd be teaching as a TA. I don't know anyone who's gone through the program -- remember that until about 20 months ago it wasn't really on anyone's "national" radar screen (despite a handful of accomplished grads in the past) except those who stumbled across it.
