Accepting 2 seats
« on: April 14, 2009, 11:26:54 AM »
I know this will give me bad karma in the long run, but is it okay to accept a seat to 2 schools, if you haven't made up your mind yet? (especially if only one of them requires a $ deposit right now)... is any of it binding?

Just pay for the one seat deposit now.  When is the latter seat deposit's deadline?  Basically you have to decide by the latter deadline.  I wouldn't accept 2 seats.  Maybe I'm thinking about this the wrong way, that's my 2 cents.

I currently have deposits in at 2 schools. The deadlines came up and I had no choice. Of course, I decided about 3 days after I sent in the deposits. I'm planning to withdraw just as soon as my financial aid is finalized. I know I'm not the only one that has done this. Plenty of people I talked to at the schools I applied to said that they knew someone who changed their mind during orientation. They all just lost their deposits.

Bad karma. Check the deposit form to see if it's "binding" (aka Tuition Bill.) But really, don't do it.
