According to a former dean at Stanford University, Julie Lythcott-Haims, “There is no scarcity of good colleges. There are 2800 accredited four-year schools in America.” The ostensible need to apply to 20 schools, by students and parents, she says, only “increases the apparent selectivity of schools. They have to deny more applicants because too many kids are applying to too many schools.”
