    So say someone has scores that are on par with the top 20 scools. What's a good way to break down the number of apps? I'm gonna try applying to Loyola, Rush and UIC where I figure I have a good shot, should I apply to any more schools that I feel I'm very competetive at?
    Should I just go to town on many top schools? Or is there a better way to break it down?

    15 is a good number for a non-CA resident.

    I applied to 18 schools as a FL resident.

    Also, you might want to apply to a few extra schools on AMCAS. b/c you might get lazy later on and not send in some secondaries. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

    It's so easy to add more and more schools to your list of AMCAS schools. Before I knew it, I had applied to 26 of them!
