Application Distribution
« on: September 03, 2004, 11:46:32 AM »
I am curious how everyone is distributing their apps between reaches to safeties. 

Here is how I plan on doing it:

2 Longshots (~5%)

4 Reaches (~25%)

3 Possibilities (~40%)

4 Safety (~80%)

1 Super Safety (~95%)

What do you all think?

Reaches (25-40%) 1

Possibilities (40-80%) 8

Safety (80-95%) 2

Real Safeties (above 95%) 2

I've got mine broken up into:
2 reaches
2 possibilities
2 matches
1 safety

I've recently been pondering adding another match or safety, but I dunno.

If i were you, I wouldnt add another safety...I'd add another match.  With a 179/3.68 I doubt there are 7 schools that would not accept you in the entire country (I'm ignoring your safety).

this is how I'm doing it.  What the percentage is for getting into those schools I could really care less.
