I just posted something similar to your post without having read yours. I am in a similar situation to yours. I have been offered a scholarship but I don't believe I'll know by April 1st whether or not I'm in at other schools. Some advice I have received on another message board: Contact the other schools you've applied to, and let them know about your deadline. Contact the school you've been accepted to, and find out whether the deadline is flexible at all. Hope that helps somewhat, and I hope that others will reply too.
