    If a school asks you on a supplemental application to list other pharmacy schools you are considering, should you list all of the schools you are applying to, or just the ones you would really like to attend - like top 3 or something?

    I'm obviously interested in all of the schools I am applying to, but of course I have a few that I would like to attend more than others.

    I don't think it's fair to ask an applicant what other schools you're applying to. If it asked me that on one of my supplementals, I'd be contacting the school and asking what the significance of this question is to my application. If they asked me, I'd say yes (since it's true), because I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket so to speak. I also wouldn't specify which programs because it's none of their business. You're already paying for applying, supplementals, etc, and interview (if necessary), so there's no reason for them to know the answer.

    I know Mercer and Univ of Oklahoma asked this question on the supplemental. I just listed all the schools because I was afraid that they could track the schools down through PharmCAS and it might seem too good to be true if I said I wasn't going to apply to any other schools.
