My beef with the 4/11 date is that they're having an ASD on 4/13. What the @#!*?!

What exactly does accepting the offer mean? Do you have to send in your deposit? I would e-mail the dean of admissions or someone who has a vested interest in your enrollment. But this behavior does scare me. My UG experience was as enjoyable as it was because the administration was willing to work with you. So far, NYU has shown 0 capacity to do that.
From what I understand, you have to send in your intent to enroll (presumably along with your deposit), but I don't believe the scholarship offer (or deposit, of course) is binding. Still, I don't have $450 dollars to just throw around.
So basically we all would have been better off not completing our aid apps until mid-April! AHH!
I wonder if NYU admin ppl are reading this thread (or care if they are). This strict April 11th deposit date is pissing everyone off and really makes no sense in so many ways (no chance for appeal, 3-4 weeks before most schools' deadlines including their old deadline, and its before their last ASD). I don't expect NYU to keep its 4th spot if they keep treating their potential scholarship students this way.yup...more venting from me, been in this mood ever since getting my NYU award.
I asked them to extend the 4/11 deadline - they wouldn't.
