maggiemay Posted August 16, 2013 Share Posted August 16, 2013 Hi everyone and thanks for your help, I will be applying to PhD in Biology/Biomedical programs this fall. I am very pessimistic and would love to apply to a ton of schools to be on the safe side. However, I dont want to ask my PI and other LOR writters for soooo many LORs. So my question is, how many applications is a good number to send out. Like 5...10...15...? I have been told be my professors before that "so and so" student asked them for 16 LORs and how that was WAY to many. I have heard that you shold apply to around 10 to better your chances? FYI, I plan to apply to mainly "normal" schools and perhaps 1 or 2 "prestigous" schools. I always doubt myself so I feel dumb even asking professors for LORs to the ivy league shchools, so we will see how many of those I actually apply to...
