Anybody notice this. This year's applicants seem to disregard the application fees now. I remember the previous year when the students applying to 5-6 schools were normal. Our year's trend seems to be to take a risk and apply to over 10! I wont be a hypocrite and attack the people applying to that many (considering I applied to 9), but dont you guys think this is starting to get out of hand? What happened to the days when each college applied were personally loved for their specialty, not for their prestige?
I think this is the cause of all the rejections you see, and the reasons behind the rejections of so many exceptional students. All the abundance of applicants is beginnign to cause problems. How do you think the unioversities will overcome this problem?
