Okay, I have a question which might be basic, but I do not understand it.
Many schools accept people off from their waitlist well after April and yet most schools make you commit to them some time in April.
So, say you get waitlisted at Superior school A and accepted to School B. You would go to School A over School B if accepted. April rolls around and you are still on A's waitlist, but don't want to get burned so you commit to school B and give them the deposit.
Then, let's say in May, School A offers you admission. School A is your dream school, but you have already committed to School B. What are your options? Is a committment binding or could you break it to go to dream school that accepts you off waitlist?
