Cut down on high reaches
Hi, I was wondering what your opinion would be on which reaches I should keep and which I should remove. Currently, I narrowed my reaches down to Stanford, CalTech, MIT, Harvard, Princeton, JHU, and Cornell. However, I believe this is way too many reaches and I would like to cut more out. I plan to take mechanical engineering. I really can't decide which to keep as they all are so great.25 replies
