This is the truth, and it's seriously frustrating. I missed having to double deposit by mere hours. If I hadn't checked my status checker that day, I might have had to spend another $500. I seriously think that schools make extra money because they know we have to do this. On the other hand, the system allows for eleventh hour miracles. People have gotten in on orientation day. (BTW, if you'd change schools that late, say so! Mr. McShay told me that Fordham did keep a small number of locals on the list who would be willing to attend at the last minute. I asked to be on that list.)
My first acceptance was from a safety school ... their deposit deadline was April 15th.
Think they just straight wanted that cash or what?
