10, which I think is a nice round number.

I sent in apps to 11 schools... now I'm kicking myself for doing that as only 4 of those schools really appeal to me at the moment... and to think I spent about $700-800 on LSDAS and application fees... silly silly me.  ::)

It's hard to stop applying once you start. Still, I'm having enough trouble managing all my schools post-application as it is. I can't imagine having any more. Sometimes I'm tempted to add another, and then I think of all the work I put into each application, and filling out even more financial aid forms, and I just don't do it.

I applied to 35, splitter so I wanted to cast a wide net.  I have also been getting a couple of fee waivers after I took the Dec LSAT, but I think I should refrain from applying anymore.  I swear it's a sickness!

24 applications, because someone convinced me that accumulating rejection letters is the coolest!

You should frame your rejections and hang them on your living room wall. They make a great conversation piece (I think I might actually do this...).

HOLY F'ing crap dude! I thought I was bad.

Yeah I know...I think after a while I just got a bit caught up and didn't realize how many I'd applied to until I tried to rattle off the list.  People's rxns kind of clued me into the fact that I had probably blown past the normal number of application.

20. Sadly, half of them i won't really consider unless something drastic happens this cycle; such a waste of money.

Started with 10, then added 2 more later.

And yeah I think there are 4 that I wouldn't go to without a crapload of money.
