6 total. How many in round 1 will be determined by how good the quality is before submission....and smart planning.

That's exactly my plan. 5 schools, so either 2 or 3 in R1 and 3 or 2 in R2. How many in R1 will depend on how good I think my essays are at that point.

A friend who graduated last year did zero in R1 and all five in R2.

8 is a lot. I think 3 per round is a good balance...unless you are throwing an ED in there. Doing 3 for R1 last year was tough, talking with folks they said that by the time you get to #5 you are starting to get burned out and quality starts to slip a little.

I agree, 8 is way too much. Go for 3 and select those schools have the best fit for you (realistic to get in, specializations you plan to do, quality of profs etc.)
