What's up guys! I'm feeling like sexual chocolate today, nice and sunny--gonna go to a lake soon. But I wanted to ask my equally sexy SDN'ers their opinions on the number of schools to apply to. Right now, I have a list of about 20 schools. This list represents 11 schools that line up with my stats, 4 that are slight-reaches, 3 that are big time reaches, and 2 that whose stats are lower than mine. I'm having difficulty deciding how to narrow these schools. This is the somewhat conflicting advice I have received from other posts: 1) Apply to as many schools as you possibly can (reasonably), and once you're in a good situation later down the road (with interviews/acceptances in hand) you can choose to stop filling out secondaries or stop going to interviews. 2) DO NOT apply to as many schools as possible; rather choose a wide range of schools. This wills save time, money, etc.
