I received an email today asking if I'd made a decision and to let them know if there was anything they could do to facilitate my decision making process.
Also, just got an email invitation to dinner at UF's president's house in April.
I didn't get the first email but I did get the one about dinner at the president's house and one about admitted students day in April.rad law wrote:fcowrx wrote:Is anyone paying the seat deposit at UF in addition to another school or two? I need to submit my deposit by April 1 and won't know if I've received a scholarship at UM until after April 1. I'm from Miami so UM with a scholarship makes for a tough decision.
How serious do they take multiple seat deposits??
Call and ask. You wouldn't be the first to do it. They might say it's ok, or they might say you must withdraw other apps. I'd call them just to make sure, as I wouldn't want to follow someone's possibly wrong advice here and get screwed.
I have the April 1st deadline also and when I called the woman told me I had to withdraw from other schools at that time. It also says it on the enrollment confirmation page. But if you call and they tell you something different, definitely let me know. It would make me reconsider withdrawing.
I e-mailed one of the deans asking if I could postpone the deadline bc I can't afford to pay 2 deposits in case I change my mind if I get into the schools I haven't heard from. This was her response:
I wanted to clarify that if you accept your award and submit your enrollment form and $200 deposit, although you are required to withdraw from other law schools that have admitted you, you may keep pending applications open at other law schools and may also stay on other schools' wait lists. If you are subsequently offered admission by another law school (as a result of a pending application or a waitlisted application) and decide to withdraw from UF, then you would forfeit your non-refundable deposit here. Students who do not accept their scholarship/grants by April 1, will still have their offers of admission open until the regular deadline of May 15.
^ Thanks for posting. I wonder if this is the standard for most schools.
