bioquant Posted September 6, 2015 Share Posted September 6, 2015 (edited) Going through applications and I'm noticing many have a section like, "Please list other graduate schools to which you are applying." It has been optional on all applications, but I'm wondering how that info is actually used. Anyone have any insider knowledge?In the worst case, I imagine scenarios where admissions committees might elect to not make an offer because they anticipate the applicant might get (and take) a better offer from somewhere else. Not sure what a best case scenario might be. Perhaps it is merely for internal stats, to estimate what other competing schools their programs are being clustered with.Also, if anyone wants to share their reasoning why they did or did not fill out this section, or even provided a partial list, that would be interesting to hear.
