The $900 deposit is due on the 20th but neithe my parents nor I can have the full amount by then. I know it is required by 5 days but would it be possible to ask for an extension. I want to commit for sure but like I said, i wasn't budgeting to hear back 10 days after applying.

any advice would really appreciated, whether here or via PM


Sorry, bro, but let them know they can give the spot to me.

Law school is cutthroat.

I would ask if you could put down a smaller amount, and the rest once you have it maybe?

Real answer, Congratulations! That is amazing and gives hope to many.

I would personally try to secure a pay advance or a loan from a family member (nonparent) before I asked the law school. I mean, you're in, so I doubt it could hurt, but if they say no you will still need to find another option.

A lot of schools' bursars accept credit card payments. If you know you can pay within a month, that's a viable option.

Title loan or personal loan are last resort options.

Excited none the less. :D


Is the quick turn around on requiring the deposit a function of your ED status?

I'm sure you'll hear something by the end of the year.

ETA: Not because you're so late, but because Cornell is just that slow.

Applied ED 12-20, got on the waitlist today. I'm pretty surprised because Cornell was my longshot app.

162/3.7

Any suggestions going forward?
