How many colleges should I apply to?

There is no “minimum” number of colleges to which a student should apply. Obviously, students should not waste time and money applying to colleges that they have no interest in attending. That said, beyond applying to the colleges a student is most interested in, even those that may be a bit of a “reach,” a student needs to be sure there are at least one or two on the final application list where admission is likely AND where the financial aid likely will make attendance feasible.
