We tried also promoting in the SF bay region in case students were interested in traveling, because of the larger market. ~10% of applications were from students outside of Seattle.

We hit the metrics we were expecting, which I think shows in the increase of signups.

Some potential reasons we might have failed to convert as many:

The board agreed to cancel Labs 2015, without any motion. The board also suggested arranging some form of mentorship for the students involved.
