How many applications did you send out this cycle?

Just out of curiosity, after reading and participating in the "plague" thread, I was wondering if we could shed some unscientific light on how prevalent a problem this really is in the law school admission process.

Hello, I sent out six:

2 miracle schools (Penn & Cornell)
1 reach (Temple)
2 realistic (Villanova & Hofstra)
1 safety (Widener)

I wish I had applied the plague theory, I spoke with some "old school" profs, who told me only three.  I'm glad that at least I did what I felt was right, although I had originally wanted to apply to Ten.

I did some analysis in October and applied to only 7. I thought 6 would reject me and that Houston would accept me. I was wrong. I got dinged by UH and applied to 12 more schools. After more rejections, I got really worried; I think I am up to 32.

Good for you, I personally have a problem with the 170 and aboves with 3.5 and aboves GPAs applying everywhere when they only have real intentions of going to about 3.
