For international students how many colleges do you recommend to apply to? Any suggestions?
I am applying for 6-8 in the US but few others elsewhere
We did some analysis before and typically recommend 10-12 colleges for US students. For international, it is very difficult to predict. A lot of factors like financial aid, country you are from etc make a difference. Ideally you should apply to 6-7 colleges that you are interested in and happy to attend assuming you can afford them but also have a number of options in your home country and elsewhere.
Depends on how much you want to get into the US college. The more the better. But realistically around 10 is max assuming you are applying eslewhere.
