Greetings. My question is: I may be applying to about 20-25 schools. Should I list them all in my applications? If yes, are schools going to be like: a) "he really doesn't know what he wants", or b) "he has all this $ for apps, let's not give him any $" So what do You guys think? Thanks a lot

For the schools that I asked I listed all of them and right now I'm applying to like 19 schools. I'm gonna try and get fee waivers for all or most of them so I'm assuming for the schools that ask they'll see I already had a fee waiver for their school and my PS would make it obvious why I'm applying to those particular schools.

I wouldn't list them all. If I saw 20 schools on an app, I would be very wary that you'd go somewhere else. I would just list 5 or so that are in the immediate area so it sends the message that you're serious about moving to wherever.

I was gonna list a selection (basically five schools representative of the range I was applying to) but then I read this very convincing explanation: --LinkRemoved--
