How many colleges should you apply to?

Lighthouse College recommends you narrow your list to five to eight colleges that you are interested in attending.  The schools should include some you’re very likely to get accepted to, your safety schools, and some that are more of a reach for you to be accepted.

Each college lists their average student profiles, so apply to some that you are in the top of the criteria, some that you are in the middle and some that are more of a stretch for you.

Remember, state schools are not always cheaper, so be sure to apply to some private schools as well. 

To pick the ideal school for you, consider the following process:
Decide your career path
Select a group of colleges that have excellent programs in a major that leads into your career choice
Narrow your college selection to five to eight schools
Apply to your colleges and Good Luck!
