I have nothing better to do now, so thought of running a nothing-better-to-do poll.

I have shortlisted 8 to 9 schools, but I think I will eventually apply to only 6 of them. Not sure if I'm spreading myself too thinly.

I'm applying to 12. Wanted to apply to more but my research advisor, also my key reference, thought that 12 was a lot. So I figure more may make the recommendations too much for him and make him not be too enthusiastic in the letters. I figure 12 is a good safe number. 6 great schools and 6 really good public schools

Welcome, jbsears. First time I see you in the PhD thread.

I'm applying for strategy and international business depending on where the professors that have the same research interest are located in their respective schools. I don't have the greatest application so I decided to apply to 12. Both undergrad and mba are approximately 3.3. My gmat (750) and my LORs should be the strengths in my application. I just hope my gmat covers my gpa enough to get through the initial weeding out of unqualified applicants to where they read my SOP and LORs.
