WUSTL Seat Deposit Date Question

Postby fakehunter » Mon Mar 26, 2012 6:29 pm

Hey guys,

I just got an email from WUSTL reminding me that the first seat deposit is April 1st. I have no intention of going there, but I'm not ready to turn them down yet because I want to use their 114k scholarship offer to negotiate at schools I do want to go to. The deposit is refundable until May 1st, by which time I will have made a decision. (My top choice requires their first deposit by May 1st.) Should I send in the deposit so I can refund it later? Will that hurt my chances of getting a bigger scholarship at another school, or affect my decision at the one school I haven't yet heard from, NYU? Or is it not too late to ask for a decision extension? I'm worried that they will say no because of the refundable deposit clause.

Send the deposit. Get the refund later.

Simple. It won't affect anything you do at other schools.
