Just how many colleges should you apply to? AdmissionsConsultants' Deb Schmidt adds her expertise on this matter in today's News Times (Danbury, CT):

"Deb Schmidt, who advises families as a consultant for a business called AdmissionsConsultants, said there can be drawbacks to applying at too many schools.

She said colleges are looking for students who know something about the school and can articulate in their applications how they might fit in. For instance, a student might comment on the college's strong history faculty, or its summer internships in a certain field.

Students who apply to a lot of schools have trouble learning enough about each one to effectively tailor their applications, Schmidt said."

Deb has worked in college admissions for over 20 years. She has evaluated college applicants for Bates College, Carleton College, and Cornell University.
