waitlisted at #1st school, deposit due in #2 school

Postby ghjuio » Fri Apr 22, 2011 9:08 pm

Let me know if there is a protocol for dealing with the below situation.

I am waitlisted at my #1 school. They will give me a decision in June. I got into my #2 school and my #2 school wants a deposit in mid-May. Can I call #1 school and tell them about my predicament and gently ask them to render a speedy decision?

What is the proper procedure in this situation? What have people done in the past?

Yes, you can.

Pay the deposit at your #2 school and wait with everyone else.

Idk if it would be to your advantage to ask for a speedy decision. Unlikely that #2 gives you an extension until June. Best bet is just pay the deposit to #2 and eat it if you get into #1.
