That's a good question. When I first applied I listed all the schools about 6-8 . Than about two weeks later I decided to apply to about four more schools. So the original 6-8 I applied to wouldn't know I applied to an extra four schools, and I doubt they care enough for you to have to call them to update your application. So I really don't know why that matters.
Maybe they want to know if you applied to say four schools in the same region they might want to compete over you. But with that logic they might also be say well we don't need to accept him because I am sure one of the other schools in the area will. Or it could be a psychological game where there trying to see where you think you should be getting into.
That's all I got.
