The Seminary being overcrowded is really not a true gauge of the future. Their are more opportunities since the Summorum Pontificum came out and because so few are ordained they cant fill the need.

There are 300 FSSP priest, supposing 40 years average active service, yearly  7.5  ordinations are needed to keep the current level. My info is that the FSSP ordains average 13 priests, so they are growing

In the good old times about half of the freshman seminarians made to the ordination. About half of the rest was advised out by the rector other half left in their own. However I know quite a few good former seminarians who left the seminary the the years made them better than average Catholics, so the cost invested was not w/o reason. Also some later get degree from the sacred theology and work as pastoral associates
