I'm trying to create list of at least 20 schools that I would apply to. Where can I get information about the stats of various medical schools such as average MCAT/GPA.
it is definitely possible to apply to approx. 20 schools "well and on time." To the OP, some schools don't even have essays on their secondary app so those are quick to complete. There is so much luck involved in the process that 10 schools might not be enough unless you are a top applicant w/ no weaknesses. Yes, 30 schools may be overkill, but 20 is quite reasonable these days I would say.My advice is to apply to fewer than 20 schools. The reason is that I think it would be more difficult to complete 20 secondary applications well and on time. If you select your schools wisely (3 overshoot, 3 undershoot, 4 same), you can get the job done with about 10 schools.
