Depends on your situation.... apply with the hopes of getting around 4-7 interviews. Most people who apply and receive 5 interviews end up matching. If your stats are very good, apply to programs that interest you and are what you are looking for in a program. If your stats are less than very good, apply to as many programs as you can knowing that you can't afford to be picking and choosing.I am in the process of applying for Ortho and would like to know on average how many programs do you apply to and the number of programs you hope to get interviewed to have a decent chance of landing a spot. Thanks.
