Hey all, I have been putting a lot of thought into which programs I should apply to. There are about 20-25 that I feel would be a good fit for my research interests in locations that are acceptable. I feel applying to this many schools is a bit excessive in terms of money and time filling out secondaries. What is a good ballpark in terms of numbers of schools to apply to to keep from being too busy/expensive and to maximize the possibility of at least 1 acceptance? Thanks!
