I've heard unconfirmed stories that occasionally the admissions committees are slightly off on predicting the yield and they get more students accepting offers of admission than they were prepared for . . . then the last ones to commit right before the deadline are out of luck . . . has this ever actually happened, or is it a law school application urban legend? Is this the idea to putting down multiple deposits?
They may offer students the option of deferring in exchange for tuition or something. Otherwise the school misjudged and just has to overenroll and deal with it.
