Should Colleges Know Where Else You've Applied?
Question: College applications often ask for the names of other colleges to which the student is applying. How do admissions officers use this information? Should the applicant list all the other colleges he or she is applying to, even if it is a long list?
The majority of college applications do not ask students to list the other schools to which they are applying, but itâ€™s certainly true that some do, and if you happen to hit on a number of those in the latter group, it can certainly seem as if everyone wants to know. It can also make you wonder how this information is used.
