    From the FAQ:

    How big is Hacker School?Our current batch is 20 students, not including us (Nick, Dave, and Sonali). We accept as many students as we think we can accommodate and keep the batch good.

    So I guess there are more women in the incoming class than there are total people in the current class, period. That’s pretty cool.

    On the other hand, their acceptance ratio for women is 1/4 what it was before and they rejected over 106 times as many women.
