As a 1L, I'll tell you I applied to too many schools (22)!  I don't regret it, though...  One never knows what may happen!

3.  People keep telling me I should've applied to more though . . .  :-\

yeah I think you should probably apply to more, I'm not sure if you will get in at any of those three...

15.  Plus, most of mine were paper app's.  I love the taste of envelope adhesive...mmmmmm. Cost a fair amount of dough, and my mouth still tastes like USPS.

16.

3 of which there is almost no chance I'm going to.

Many others of which there is no chance I'll have the choice to go to.

There are about 5 schools that, with an acceptance, I would be able to withdraw from about 12 schools immediately...  I was kinda hoping that one of those schools would say something nice to me this week, and thus make the financial aid thing much easier, but ... so far, silence.

Similar here. I applied to 18.

There are three I was rejected by already and at least two more I have no shot at.

With my latest acceptance, I have about two schools that I can pretty much eliminate from the running. I only have one school that is an insta-withdraw school... I have another couple that would invoke an almost-as-massive withdrawing spree... but... yeah...

14, which is way freaking too many, considering that I'm not very interested in some of them anymore.  And I've gotten a couple fee waivers that I think I'll use... so that will be 16.

16 -- I now know it was too many. 

I rationalize it by saying I had 3 lsats, which could have been viewed as a 163, 166, of 167.  So far it looks like schools have been leaning toward the higher end.
