How many schools have you applied to?

Postby lsatextreme » Tue Jan 18, 2011 1:52 am

I lost count, but it's around 45 and counting. Spent about $900 so far...

I'm a heavy splitter and I figure I might as well invest now

45 is an absurd amount. Do you have any location/ranking preferences?

TBF, I think I applied to way too many schools (25), so that biases my response.

Only 5, but that's because of fee waivers. I've already decided where Im going, just applies other places for scholarship leverage.

10, although in hindsight it should have been 3, maybe 4. Fee waivers help.

25. In retrospect, I would have done around 15.

i know exactly what you mean and it's been just a little over a week since i've sent mine.

but man, that's pretty pricey for just 14 apps. No waivers?

I haven't applied yet, but I had a list of 22 schools that I was really going to apply to that is now at 14. 3.37 / 168. I'm crying every night trying to get my PS respectable. I want to send out apps by Friday... though I keep on saying that :oops: .

I applied to 15, only had to pay for 3.

I thought 15 was a lot, but it's good to see some of you guys have me beat!

I applied to 15. Everyone keeps telling me I'm crazy and OCD, but clearly I'm not alone. It's those stupid fee waiver emails that get me everyday! Makes me want to apply to more.

I applied to 16 schools. Initially I thought this was a lot, but I guess it isn't compared to the rest of you. 45 applications! :shock:

14, half of those apps covered by fee waivers. Thank the baby jesus in his crib sucking on his pacifier for fee waivers!

I was originally going to do 15, but after I thought about some of the schools, I realized I wouldn't be happy if accepted there. So, I narrowed my list to 10.

I'm glad to see other people applied to 10+ schools. I was seriously worried I was crazy/throwing away money!
