The two are not significantly different in ranking, and $13.5k over three years doesn't seem like a significant amount of money here. You now have the fun and widely sought after option of choosing a school based solely on its merits as an academic institution. An activity most of us have long forgotten, I'm sure. Enjoy!
Haha! This comment is awesome. Thank you so much.
Just to keep everybody abreast of my situation, some email error kept my admission counselor's email from reaching me. I emailed them on the 30th and the response would've come on the 1st. I spoke with my counselor today and she forwarded me the email that basically was a we do not negotiate with terrorists. She said it would be possible that more money is freed up for certain admitted students who deposit after the class gets settled but as of now they aren't doing individual negotiations.
I spoke candidly about my situation to her and let her know that $ would be a determining factor. She told me to pick the school that fit best.
Question for anybody that is willing to throw their 2 cents in: Is submitting a deposit to both schools dumb? I also apologize, I didn't intend to hijack this thread.
