After being on this site for a while, I realized that applying to just one school made me one of the few, the proud, the...naive?
I felt confident about me decision until I logged on here and realized people were applying to 4..5..14!? schools. And I started thinking I might have screwed myself.
But then the news came -- I was accepted! To say I was elated would be an understatement.
To keep what could be a long story short: No, I don't advise just applying to one school even though it worked out to me, it's always nice to have a backup plan. But if just one school gets your blood flowing, you think it'd be a fantastic fit, and you realistically think you could get in, go for it! Don't let other people psych you out. You know you better than anyone else and this is your process and yours alone.
One was enough for me and I couldn't be happier with that decision.
