GULC vs. NYU WL

Postby Sequoia90 » Tue Apr 27, 2010 5:13 pm

So I need to make a decision by Thursday...

IN at GULC with $$

WL at NYU

Georgetown has two options:
1) say you're going and withdraw all applications
2) $400 security deposit

Thoughts?

Hey Sequoia,

I'm in the exact same position. I ponied up the $400 and stuck my name on the WL. I'm not expecting much of it, but if I do by some miracle get admitted to NYU, $400 seems like a relatively small price to pay for that option.

Good luck!

Would you go to NYU if you got off the wait list? If so, $400 seems easily worth walking away from.

yeah, it seems to me that either way you are going to put down a deposit to Gtown... so idk why you wouldn't stay on the list.

Is the issue that you must give up your scholarship if you stay on the NYU waitlist?

Georgetown lets you send in a commitment waiver to deposit instead of actually paying anything.

I think JKS is right, 400 is a small price to pay.

Sounds different from the $$ I got from Gtown.

Sounds like a no-brainer to me. The $400 would credited to your tuition payment if you wind up at Gtown. Pay the $400 and see what happens.
