How common is it to be denied from ALL of your reach schools?
I've been planning on applying to a number of top colleges (along with safer ones, so don't worry), and though I am academically qualified for all of them, being rejected from most wouldn't be surprising. I wouldn't say my chances at any one of these places is especially good, but when taken collectively, I'm guessing that the chances of getting accepted into at least one is a bit better.. How often do people applying to higher-end colleges get denied from EVERY choice?
For reference, the best colleges currently on my radar include Princeton, JHU, U Penn, Cornell, MIT, and Brown.
