I feel like an idiot right now for signing the lease 2 days before this email comes. I had given up hope of Northwestern.
As for my Parents/guilt issue, they only guilt me when I 'waste' money... this lease signing is going to waste money, just hopefully not the full amount.
It's not really "wasting" money. You made a reasonable decision (signing a lease since your chances of going to another school weren't that high). You are now in it at NU. You are losing the lease money to go to a better school. I don't understand how a reasonable person would consider this actually wasting money. Paying for UIUC, now that's wasting money.
