Trust me^ is giving you goo advice I've been preparing for months as well and it's better to spend the time making your apps good then applying to more schools.

What are your ECs? And agree that 10 might be too much...

Thanks! Yeah just trying to hedge my bets. Working with a consultant on admissions and they're saying I should at least expect an admit from cornell, but you never know.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has experienced this and whether my anxiety is warranted!
