I thought he was answering a question about how many he expected in the next year and not in the whole process.  But am not sure.

And of course any number is a guess - and especially if a GAC objection is enough to throw out an application or at least delay it interminably, we might see far fewer.

I was at a meeting last week with a bunch of active guessers and would estimate that 200 was the mean guess.  i guessed 500, but that was probably wishful thinking.
