No, 10 is reasonable.  When I was really worried about my overall options (after I had taken the LSAT, but before I had received my score) my list was up to 15.  I've applied to 8 so far and will probably stick with those.  I agree with the sentiment that you should apply to as many reaches as you can afford to, at schools you would ultimately attend, just to keep your options open.

K?

I started at 8... but I keep getting fee waivers for schools either at or slightly above my range, so I have applied to some of those, too... I think I'm at 13 now  :)

5.  It was 4 but I added one.  I only got a fee waiver for 1 that I was applying to.  I didn't use fee waivers for schools that I wasn't honestly interested in.

Three: a reach, a target, and a back-up.
