When I contacted my interviewer to tell her I had decided on a school, she instructed me to put it in writing so that she could forward the information to program director Louie Rodriguez.
He wasn't in my interview and she said he likes to speak with all candidates. He called me and the gist of what he said was that it was great that I had decided, but that they need enrollment verification in the form of deposit receipt before they make the decision/placement.
I was waiting on a scholarship offer and I told him so; I asked whether waiting ruining my chances and he said that it's normal not to have made a decision yet. He also said that as long as I had a decision by the end of April, that I should be fine. He did say that the sooner the better, though, so that they can make placements, etc.
I finally paid my deposit Friday. It'll arrive by Tuesday and the admissions office has agreed to forward a receipt to SEO. Keep you all posted.
