'what other colleges are you applying to' question...

<p>on the Virginia Tech application it asks an OPTIONAL question that is something like, "what other colleges are you applying to?" </p>

<p>I'm applying to a range of colleges (reach - duke, emory) (safety - indiana U, u kansas)....should i tell them the reach schools, the safety schools, or just not respond? </p>

<p>If you could give me any knowledge on this, please do so!</p>

<p>If it's optional, I'd leave it blank--I don't think it can help you in any way.</p>
