When do most people suggest putting down an apartment deposit by?

Depends on when your move date is and how far in advance the landlord wants it/has a vacancy.

I guess my question is in general. I'd be moving sometime in August for school. I'm still choosing between two schools and am worried that by the time I decide, my housing options will be limited.

What I'm finding is that the apartments don't even know what vacancies they'll have until a month (45-60 days max) in advance.

No prob. At first I thought you were asking for a specific date and I was all 'pfft, how would we know?!' :P

It depends where. Some places, especially those with many students in the area, fill up now. However, there are usually apartments opening every so often, so it shouldn't be a huge problem.

It really depends. I've been places where the good apartments for next year start to go in October, and I've been places where you couldn't sign a lease a month ahead of time if you tried.
