Still no response on my renegotiation...
Honestly, if you've deposited, there's little to no incentive to reconsider your scholarship/financial aid package. Looks like NU was stingy (at least with TLSers) this cycle.
This is something I wondered, because you can still not attend the school, despite the deposit. I think they do have some incentive to try and officially lock you down, till you matriculate, because deposits are not hard matriculation (I COULD BE WRONG). Thoughts?
I think you're right. I've heard of some people even getting off the WL at other schools and successfully requesting their deposits back. If you definitely got off the WL of some school you really wanted to go to, you could definitely jump ship. Plus, even if it were binding after your second deposit, the school that admits you is going to understand that you had to due to deadlines, and NU isn't going to waste the time to sue your ass. They've got bigger fish to fry.
