Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Decisions for top schools to come in after deposit deadlines for the rest. WTF?« on: March 09, 2006, 04:26:40 PM »
Yeah... while we're on the subject, the University of Illinois requires a $500 seat deposit (most of the schools I've gotten into are in the $200-250 range) and another one of $500 later. Any reason why theirs would be comparatively so high?
I definitely think $500 now and another $500 later is a bit on the steep side- what I consider "normal" is ~$200 now and ~$300 later totalling around $500. $1000 total for a SEAT DEPOSIT is a bit ridiculous- it could be justifiable, however, if that $1000 is applied to the tuition for the fall which I hear is the practice at some schools...
