Let the Waiting Begin!

From the Google Code weblog:
It’s shaping up to be another exciting Google Summer of Code this year! As of the deadline, we’ve received 6,179 student applications from over 3,000 students. The list of accepted student proposals will be published on April 11, 2007 on the Google Summer of Code page.

6,179 student applications from over 3000 students, nice. That’s an average of about 2 applications per student. Just wondering how many students actually reached their application limit of 20. Since only 1 in 5 students or 1 in 10 applications (around 600) will be accepted, this should be a long wait for most students :)

It seems google is accepting around 800 students, instead of the number stated in their faq.
