i hear that. i'm applying to a ton of law schools too (probably will end up being about 22 - 25), because my fiance is simultaneously applying to med school and we're trying to make our locations match. basically, trying to cast as wide of a net as possible. my logic is that a.) the cost of the extra apps is minute compared to how much i'm about to drop on law school, and b.) it doesn't entail that much extra work, given that many of the personal statements, etc. can be tweaked slightly and reused.
