<p>^^^^ In my opinion, that is just absolutely ridiculous.</p>
<p>A CCer who will be a college freshman next year applied to about 35 different schools, I believe. Accepted to all but two.</p>
<p>I will be applying to 12 or 14 schools.
Currently the list is:
Reaches: Yale, Brown, Harvard
In Between: Bowdoin, Williams, Amherst, Middlebury, Swarthmore
Likelies: Connecticut College, Colby, Grinnell, Oberlin, William and Mary
Safeties: Ohio State</p>
<p>William and Mary is a new addition... I'm staying there this summer, so we'll see if I like it.</p>
^ I am undecided.
<p>What are you leaning towards?</p>
<p>Since my parents are paying for applications, it's going to be 4 or 5.</p>
<p>I applied to 5 schools total. I originally had 9 on my list, but cut a bunch out early.
I applied to:
What are you leaning towards?
<p>Nothing in particular at the moment.</p>
<p>I most likely plan on applying to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Duke, Northwestern, Dartmouth, Columbia, and Indiana University. Hooray.</p>
<p>The list is hovering somewhere around 16, but I'm trying to get it down to 12- 10 would be optimal. It's hard to take places off without having visited. Not applying HYPS.</p>
<p>I'm thinking of applying to about twelve schools. This is my list so far:
Safety: Oregon State University
Matches: Georgia Tech, Carnegie Mellon, Washington University in St. Louis, Rice, Vanderbilt
Reaches: CalTech, MIT, Princeton, Stanford
I'll also be applying to West Point.</p>
<p>Ten, as of now: Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Brown, Columbia, UChic, Pomona, Duke, Georgetown, UNC. My list, which hovered around twenty at the offset, seemed much more cohesive in the beginning, but after research and visits, I've whittled it down to this. I think 8-12 for a high-reaching applicant is about all one should (can) really take on.</p>
<p>Like I said, wasn't too sure about the categories myself, but they're kinda also dependent on how you feel your chances are of getting in and such.</p>
<p>ie, must people wouldn't say lets say Johns Hopkins is a safety school, but for me, I'm a legacy, a parent works there, I've taken high level math courses there, I've done research there, etc.... allowing me to be sufficiently confident to designate it as basically a safety.</p>
