Advice from older, wiser students please.., My list of schools to apply to hovers around 25. I feel that this is probably an unmanageable number. Geography is not an issue, as I have already narrowed away places I couldn't live. However, when I try to narrow it more, I run into one of two problems: 1) This is a place that I have a reasonable shot of getting in, and given that this whole process is so difficult, I hate to cut it. 2) This is a place I would dream of going, and even though I probably won't get in, I would hate to give up on it before trying. Can you give me tips on how many is too many? Any suggestions?
