How many schools should I apply to?

Posted on Jul 01, 2016

Even though there is no limit to the number of colleges that you can apply to, we strongly recommend that through effective college selection you narrow down your choices and apply to about 8-12 Universities. Furthermore, you should make sure that you have a range that includes Reach, Target and Safety Schools.

• A Reach School is one where your profile and credentials may fall below the school’s range for the average freshman.

• A Target or Match School is one in which your credentials and profile fall well within the school’s range for the average freshman.

• A Safety School includes any university where your credentials and profile fall above the school’s range for the average freshman.
