So a dozen are ACCEPTED however do 20 apply, or a thousand?

I guess I still have a few years to go to worry about post-graduate degrees.
Oh, sorry, I misread the website on my first reading. Not a lot of people apply to postgraduate prestigious universities in the first place, so I'm not sure if knowing that the have a large percentage will necessarily be a good thing - it could be that most people just don't think they have a chance of getting in, and thus decide not to apply.
