College Applications and Admissions

How many applications should you submit?
The traditional method suggests 5-6: 2 safe, 2 competitive, 1-2 reach. But collegeapps.com suggests 8.  I'm leaning more towards having more choices in the Spring. Thus I like 3 safe, 2-3 competitive, (1 reach - maybe) = 6 applications. In this way you will have a choice of at least 3 or 4 schools in the Spring.
