Answering Schools Before Having All Rejects/Accepts

Postby swishin and dishin » Mon Feb 13, 2012 12:18 am

Hi all,

Wish you luck at this stage of the process, but am wondering what some of you are doing in regards to offers some schools have made (maybe set early or mid April deadlines) while some other schools may only render their decision to you at/or after the deadline.

I am wondering if it is okay to email a school and ask for an extension, or what the standard protocol should be.

Thanks again

For Yale at least, they say to call them and let them know what deadlines you have and then they will try to return a decision to you before that deadline...I imagine other schools should do the same thing as yale

You can certainly ask, but I had this problem last year and couldn't get any extensions. Basically, you have to be willing to put down a non-refundable deposit at school A even though you're hoping to get in school B that's taking longer to render its decision.
