Public vs Private Application Processing
There are significant tradeoffs with public and private submissions, both providing very different types of benefits. With a completely public application process, where anyone can see every submission, this holds some applicants to a quality standard/threshold and can be helpful for those currently filling out their applications. On the other hand, a completely public process prevents some teams from applying at the risk of losing their competitive edge. This also presents a larger concern over user/data privacy.
