I'll answer that. I did what was in my best interest. I live in DC and I wanted to keep a DC option open as long as possible just in case something happened here in town (e.g. I suddenly fell madly in love, I was named secretary of state, etc). None of these things were very likely, but I paid for the right to hang on until June 15 and that's what I did. Now I feel your frustration with waiting, but I don't think any of us should EVER expect others to act contrary to their own best interest. Best of luck with GW!
GW is e-mailing admitted students who put down a 1st deposit but have thus far failed to make a second deposit. The one I received asks for a phone/e-mail response (and $800) ASAP (and no later than June 22nd) if I still have an intention to attend. Because some of you are probably already firing up responses, yes, I sent Dean Richard a quick note thanking her for everything but expressing my intention to withdraw. So that's one seat in the PT division that will (at long last) finally be open.

Thanks for your info.I was admitted in January or somewhere thereabouts. I filed the April deposit, but just let the June one pass without sending anything in. So the deadline was still June 15 for me, but it seems (as Cpt. Longshot said) that they are giving a grace period to at least some people. Hard to say *why* they are doing this, but at least one possible explanation is that they've seen a larger than expected number of people fail to send in the 2nd deposit.

My guess is that they thought they would be over-booked or at least REAL CLOSE based on the number of first-depositors. However, perhaps they were fooled, and a lot of the first-depositors, like myself, were just holding out to see if there was money, or a full-time accept, or something else coming their way. Leading to a pwning...Just speculation. Maybe they just want to be courteous...
