    All my schools are mid-tier except one (northwestern) and really want to just go to Rush. I applied to 10 schools, but is that too few schools or should I apply to more than 10?? I hit the average stats for all the schools (sGPA 3.6, cGPA 3.6, 31Q, really good extracurriculars/patient experience).

    i think 10 is ok, it's a little on the short side by sdn standards.

    Your stats are definitely competitive for Rush. I also only applied to 10 schools b/c I wanted to make sure I gave each app enough time. Good luck!
