How many University programs should I apply to??

A photo of Katarina101 Katarina101
I have 7 so far, as you can see by my signature. But, I don't really want to go into criminal justice, all I really want is social work. If I applied to 3 programs that had social work, should I also apply for college social service bachelors, and just do advanced standing.

So what Im saying is should I apply for 3 university programs, and 3 college programs for social work instead of just applying to 7 uni programs which I don't even want?

I applied to 2 universities for undergrad, and 2 universities for grad school. I also had very high marks in high school and undergrad, so had no doubt I was going to get in. So it really depends on your stats. I wouldn't waste your time applying to programs that you don't want to go to. That much should be obvious.

You are aware that you can only actually pick ONE right?
Pick the one you want.
Pick another awesome one.
Then pick a backup you know you'll get into.
There's no need to apply to 10 different ones unless you enjoy wasting your money.
