How many law school applications is too many?

Postby musselmla » Thu Jan 06, 2011 10:57 pm

I've finished pretty much all my law school applications, but have yet to send them in because I was waiting for the December score to come back today.

Some of the law schools I am applying to (like Fordham and American) are asking for a list of the other schools I am applying to.

With a 175/4.0, I'm planning on applying to many T14 schools and some others, and have right around 20 schools that I would like to send applications. Will my decision to apply to so many jeopardize my acceptance at the schools asking for a full list of other schools receiving applications?

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

with that score you can get almost anywhere. why would you waste money applying to schools you're in 100% to?

Fordham and American aren't worth the $12 report fee for you, you will probably be YP'ed anyway.

With a 4.0/175 how seriously are you considering going to any schools outside of the T14 if not for geographic or family reasons/restrictions? Save the time and money and just apply to the T14.
