Ok so the story of my life in a nutshell. This is my 3rd cycle applying. First time I applied I got a 17AA (3.1 GPA), and 2nd time I applied I had an 18 AA (3.1GPA). First time I applied to like 6 schools with one interview and no acceptances. Second time I applied to under 20 schools with one interview and no acceptances. Now, I am in graduate school getting my Master's. I just pulled off a 4.0 this semester, with a 3.6 from Fall. And I'm studying really hard for my DATs and aiming for above a 20. Do schools know how many places you apply to? Is it looked down upon or do they know that it is highly competitive, so they understand? I asked one of the schools and they said that schools DO know how many you apply to but they DO NOT look down upon it because they understand. Is that true? Any thoughts? I know it's alot of money, but I'm tired of going through this rigorous process and want to ensure my acceptance so I'm desperate. Any advice, words of wisdom, personal accounts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
