A common site:
- Applying to 20 undergraduate programs.
- Submitting 100 resumes.
- Knocking on 500 doors.
It’s impossible to give 100% to each, right? So why even bother with the add-ons that only get a half-hearted effort?
Yes, it’s nice telling ourselves we tried our best by applying, submitting, knocking on a gazillion opportunities. But isn’t it better to give our best to a smaller list?
It’s certainly better for the recipients.
