Hey SEA3347 :)
So when I went to the advancement workshop for Fall 2011 (about 2 weeks ago), the advisor told me that they sometimes end up advancing the entire alternate list because people decide not to go, can't pay for it, etc, but they always end up advancing a part of it from what I understand. I guess like two cycles ago, they moved up 15 people or some number like that. I know this doesn't help a whole lot, but that's what I was told by her. Hopefully this helps a little. Good luck to you!
