I'm trying to get a feel for how many schools most people are applying for. Last year I applied to 2 of them and was denied. This year I am applying to 8 schools. Is 8 conisidered a lot of schools? When interview time rolls around, would it make me look bad to tell them I have applied to such a large number of schools?

about 4 schools. I'm hoping i get into at least 1. My bank account is in negatives :/
I've never applied to pharmacy school but I have a general idea that it's probably expensive. How much have you or anybody reading this spent so far? Is it fair to say each application to a school is generally 100-200 overall including supps?

My tally is well over $3000 at this point. Between PharmCAS, transcripts, app fees, supp. fess, and traveling for interviews, this process is getting ridiculously expensive. I figure by the time I've finished all my interviews and put down a couple of deposits, I'll have hit the $6-8k mark. :eek:
