Possible to get a deposit waiver?

Postby NoodleyOne » Mon Apr 29, 2013 6:33 pm

Here's the skinny. I'm in at UVA, paid the first deposit, withdrew from all other schools and I am 100% committed to attending. I am also, however, broke as shit and I'm stressed out as to how I'm going to pay rent for the month of august before Financial Aid comes through. Try as I might, my sweet ass just has no value in this economy. Is it possible that UVA could potentially waive the second deposit for a guarantee of attending?

I wonder if they'd take a signed lease in C-ville as a substitute.

Never heard of such a thing.

Part-time job maybe? Or just sell some stuff on Craigslist. Maybe tutor someone on LSAT.

Get creative.

Damn, those are great ideas! Except I did all of that.

They'd have to be pretty hard-nosed to not give you some way around it, especially if you've already withdrawn from everywhere else. Call and explain the situation.

Don't you only need a few hundred dollars? Put it on a credit card then and pay it off before you start school.

You should definitely call and ask them. It's not something they should make you feel ashamed about.

Don't any of you have any money?
