Are schools notified as to how many other schools an applicant applied to? Does it look bad if you apply to a LOT of schools? If I apply to 15-18 schools (applying next summer) could it hurt my chances? If I don't get into my state school (Utah) I wan't to maximize my chances that I'll get in somewhere. Is there any sort of consensus as to how many is "overkill"? Any comments would be appreciated.
