    Hey everyone!

    I was wondering how many schools should I apply to? I am thinking that I should apply to about 20 schools based on my stats.

    These are my stats:
    3.49 overall GPA
    3.51 science GPA
    3.44 BCP GPA
    3.43 Nonscience GPA
    DAT AA 21/ TS 22/ PAT 18

    My extra curricular is pretty good in terms of leadership, volunteer, and work. The only bad thing is that I graduated already, and will have a gap year of zero education.

    Please let me know what do y'all think!

    ~13 assuming you choose schools that are within your range. Add one or two if you have no state schools.

    Keep the 20. It's better to have choices or a choice than none at all.

    I have very similar GPA and DAT scores (21AA/22TS). I applied to 14 schools in June and just added another today.
