    I applied to 7 schools, but I would have applied to a few more if I had met more admissions requirements and if there were more schools that I liked on the east coast...

    I'm applying to two, but I will only accept admission to one. Talk about pressing my luck, huh?

    I started, on PharmCas, applying to 9 schools... once I got interviews at a few schools and then acceptances I did not complete the supplementals for schools that were further down on the list so to speak. So I ended up completing apps for about 5 schools.
    The more the better! Good luck!

    I applied to 20 schools! I took the advice I read on SDN and I applied early and to the most schools I could. I'm willing to relocate so that gave me lots of options.

    I applied to all of California, and a million out of state schools.. but now that i got into Touro, I dont think i'm going to send any more supplementals..

    maybe to NSU though, because they said they want to interview me but they need my supp..

    :D

    Geez, you must have saved up a lot of money to be applying to that many schools. I'm just having trouble with 4!

    I'm from Texas and will be applying to 3 Texas schools (UT, UH, and TT) and one out of state school, U-Washington. I just applied to schools that matched the pre-req's that I've already completed or will complete in Spring of 2006.

    Money has been really tight but it's been doable because I'm working full time and splitting a pretty cheap apartment with my brother. Hopefully it'll all work out in the end...

    I applied to Georgia schools: Mercer, UGA and South. So far, I really like South. It's certainly hard, don't let anyone tell you different! But the way I see it, it's going to be hard anywhere--it's meant to be. There is a lot of material. It's not necessarily that it's uncomprehendable material, there is just SO much of it. You can't imagine if you've never been in a doctorate program. SO my point is, if I have to work hard anyways, why not work a little harder and get done a year sooner? :)

    South has excellent faculty and that makes a huge difference in my opinion :)

    Why limit yourself like that?

    To the OP, last year I applied to 11 schools. It's pretty common for applicants to apply to multiple schools.
