Applying to an abundance of colleges, What's the benefit?
I have sent 2 children to college and now my youngest daughter will be graduating from HS in 2020. May I also add that there is 11 years between my middle child and my youngest so in essence I am starting this venture as a newbie because many things may have changed. With my older children we visited colleges, selected 6-8 to apply to and awaited results. results came in, we narrowed it down to 2 or 3, attended admitted students day or made another visit and made a decision. I now see that people are applying and getting accepted to 50 -150 schools and wondering what the purpose for this would be. I don't know or stand in judgement of anyone else's situation but don't really understand the benefit or purpose. Can someone help me out on this one because if I'm missing something I really want to know. Thanks.39 replies
