I wouldn't consider it "too many" unless they're unevenly spaced, and nothing is "too many" until you get a job. Giving yourself like 20-40 mins between interviews, with a 1 1/2 hour lunch break is probably good.
Maybe this varies by school but at my school (T-14 if it matters) we have no input on the timing of our interviews, and back-to-backs are common. Still, some people choose to drop interviews to give themselves cushions (i.e. If they have three interviews at 10:00, 10:20, and 10:40, they'll drop the 10:20).
I can't think of a worse idea when you're trying to get a job than to give up opportunities that might get you a job in screeners, so I am adamantly opposed to this up until the point that you get your first offer (then you can be more selective about interviews at firms you wouldn't go to over the offering firm). So I would not recommend tinkering with your schedule to give yourself ideal breaks if it means dropping interviews.
