Multiple deposits - revoke scholly?

Postby pancakes » Wed Apr 01, 2015 8:27 pm

I received a letter from one school explicitly stating they reserve the right to revoke my scholarship if I put multiple deposits down... Is this a common practice or unique to this school?

It's been mentioned on TLS before that NDLS is doing this. More specifically, their scholarship letter states "we ask that you make a similar commitment to us and you therefore may not hold seat deposits at other law schools if you accept our offer."

I don't think that means you lose the scholarship offer simply by making a deposit at another school; rather, if you deposit w/ NDLS you have to withdraw all other apps by April 15. At least that's my guess.

I won't be attending there, but it brought it to my attention that it could be a possibility at other schools. Has anyone else encountered this or is it best just to ask the universities I'm between about their policies? By the way it was Villanova who sent the letter.
