How long will a school give you to accept at this point?

How long will a school give you to accept at this point if they suddenly accept you from a Waitlist?

One school told me to expect a decision within the next two weeks, and if accepted, I would have to accept within a time sensitive period?

Depends on what school. I have only seen two weeks myself though.

What does "accept" exactly mean - a non-refundable seat deposit?

I'd give Tennessee another few weeks, william and mary another month, and unc I'd give about the same time as wfu as I could make that work if needed.
