Students often wonder if there is a specific number of applications they need to guarantee themselves acceptance, there isn’t. Before applying, make sure you have done our Admissions Requirement worksheet (Chapter 4). Make sure to pay attention to the applications fees (included on worksheet).
Our general application suggestions are:
Dream school(s): 1-3 applications
Stretch schools: 1-3 applications
Sure things: 1-3 applications
Ultimately, the number of institutions you apply to should be reflective of your College Inventory and Self Inventory (Chapter One).
