Well the application deadline is up and they just posted the final numbers.
Over 700 people applied to go to Hi SEAS! For comparison, 6372 people applied to join the Astronaut Corp this year. Wonder how many people applied for both?
Originally I thought the website said the list of semi-finalists would be announced March 20th, but that deadline seems to have been removed from the website. Probably due to the overwhelming response!
They'll be selecting 20 semi-finalists and then whittling it down to 8 finalists.
So if all applications were equal, I would have a 1: 35 chance of being a semi-finalist!
