    It usually depends on your budget. A lot of people can't afford to send out to numerous schools. Its usually $50/school via AMCAS or AACOMS & then approx $65 for secondaries. THAT'S A LOT OF DOUGH IF YOU'RE ON A TIGHT BUDGET. Don't forget interview flights & other stuffs that will definitely suck your wallet dry [​IMG]

    Normally, pre-meds apply to about 10-15 medical schools to try & increase their chances of getting atleast ONE acceptance. Good Luck to you [​IMG]

    10 was the right number for me. I interviewed at 4 and was accepted to 2. Your grades are still a whole lot better than mine were, and at least your doing some kind of volunteer work. So I expect that unless you bomb your interview you won't have too hard of a time being accepted. Do lots of research on the schools, and good luck with your apps.
