Yes.  But maybe this is something to dig through in Admissions...

The first column is the projected destination.  The second row is the essay score.  Note that this data does not include something on the order of 282 unmarked essays in the "set-aside" box.  Hence the differential between the 457 reported above and the 694 I reported on Sunday.  Of the 282 unmarked, 237 are predicted to score a two or higher on the essay and are above the 470 cut-off.
 
The blue band are admissions to the national campus, the orange band are the state campus admissions, and the yellow band are the state campus certificate program admissions.
 
1077 is the number of marked essays.
 
Adding the twos to the mix appears to add only 37 students to the total admitted to the national campus.  So maybe the 2s ought to be sent down to the state campus IEP program.
 
Here below are the 37 who sit on this boundary value position...  It was Damarlane and his ilk that caused me to say: "This year we admit twos who are above 470."  Because we would have admitted them last year when we had no composition.  If we did de-admit them, then they would have to let them retake the essay, especially given that PICS got to practice the essay.  Yes there are PICS students in the table, so I suppose their 2 is a "real" two.  But it would be vindictive to admit Jellisa and not Ken.  By the way, the Cp column is the predicted essay score, you will note their Diff (-erentials) are all negative: they all underperformed their predicted essay score.

Dana--

This experience is something akin to the one John H. describes in his adventure in crash landing a plane on the open ocean. Thank you for saving us from drowning! Dana is like the little preserver stowed under your seat on the plane.

I need an interpreter -- like just an English version of the equation below.

I don't read the thing correctly -- is it possible to get into "national" campus with a "2" on the essay? A "4" and above should be considered "passing" the essay exam portion of the test. I think. I'd feel more confident about a student who got a 4 or above (legitimately) on the essay and did below average on the test than a student who did well on the test and scored a "2" on the essay.
