Acceptances / Letter of Intent to Enroll
« on: April 10, 2006, 01:24:11 AM »
I'm a little unclear on this, and perhaps people with broader experience than I can help me out.

Here's the dilemma: One school has accepted me and given a deadline for a signed letter of intent to enroll, in addition to a non-refundable deposit.  If I submit both items, does that mean that I cannot withdraw my acceptance at a later date, and accept admission at a different law school for this admission cycle?  Are there any umbrella policies which govern the law school admission process which can come back to haunt me later?  Perhaps it becomes a binding contract since there's an offer (acceptance letter), acceptance (signed letter of intent), and consideration (non-refundable deposit)?  Here is how the letter of intent reads:

I hereby accept admission to the day division at [fill in blank] law school and agree to abide by its rules and regulations.
