16 :(

I remember in high school (when I applied to six colleges) looking down on those who felt they had to apply to 10+ schools. Now I've turned into one of them. But I tell myself I'm doing it for the scholarships.

The worst part is that it could have been more. I have Chicago, Seton Hall and Yale applications filled out but didn't send them because I felt I just had to stop (and wasn't terribly interested in the former two schools and didn't have much of a shot at the latter).
