LOL I can't even afford one deposit. Seriously, no clue where it's gonna come from.


I'm on the same boat right now..I have to come up with the Vandy 700 deposit soon because I have nightmares of too many students deciding to go to Vandy, the class spots filling up, and them rescinding my offer.. That doesn't actually happen right?! :shock:


No that won't happen.

Also they have been relatively stingy compared to their peers, I doubt a ton of people will be beating down their doors to attend.

Okay great! Sounds petty of me but I'm happy about that. Strange, because I think that the package they gave me was gracious considering my score

So marbellie scared me...do schools actully rescind offers before deadlines if they fill their spots up? I actually lost a job like that once and now I'm all :shock:

Just went complete. HUGE reach--probably a waste of $71.00, but having something to anticipate is fun.

My cycle will be over in less than 10 days, and I already have tons of ideas for how to enjoy my free time. Not a single one of them involves stressing about school or apps.

To be completely clear, I did not say so for Vanderbilt. As I used to work for VLS I need to be very specific that in no possible way do I speak for Vanderbilt or have any idea of their current policies.

I have stated that all things being equal on a macro level schools are not very likely to rescind your offer except for egregious character and fitness issues. This is based on the fact that it happens exceptionally rarely and based on conversations I have had with many deans of admissions over the years, and not one particular person or school.

Well that's reassuring, now just to continue saving for that deposit lol (plus student loans, plus housing for next year)...I really need to stop spending money like it's a day job :|
