How many total programs did you apply to?

Post by YellowBee » Tue Jan 04, 2022 10:11 am

I applied to 12. I probably could have applied to fewer, but I was worried about being rejected everywhere. Just hoping for 1 acceptance as that's all it takes!

18 because my profile is all over the place and I am worried many programs will not actually notice that all of my poor grades were from over 4.5 years ago. One acceptance would be great, although I’m definitely hoping more for some than others :?

21... It's definitely excessive, but I didn't apply to any safeties. I applied to math and cs programs and I have no idea how competitive I am for cs.

Just 5. I was a bit iffy about continuing on in math when I was completing most of my applications and didn't want to spend an exorbitant amount on application fees.

I totally get that. The application fees are insane.
