This was in the deposit reminder they emailed me on the 7th:We are writing to remind you that your seat first deposit of $250.00 is due on April 15, 2010.
This deposit will secure your place in the fall 2010 entering class.
That wording leads me to believe it is due ON the 15th (I sent mine overnight yesterday to be safe). If you think its going to be late I'd email them so they know its on the way.
damn it. shouldn't have assumed. going to fedex kinkos right now.
I asked them that same question when I met with an admissions counselor (is April 15th the in-hand date or just post mark by) and she said they would like to have it by April 15th but they can work with you if the need arises. If I were you (and anyone else who waited until the last minute) I would call them today and say you are mailing in your deposit and if you should overnight it or if regular mail, postmarked today, will be fine. I am almost 100% sure they will accept it if it is postmarked today.
If you step back from this a little bit, this isn't a huge deal. If you were Villanova, would you really want to reject deposits of people you admitted right off the bat (and who are, presumably, your strongest candidates) because they were on the fence and sent them in at the last minute? Money is money, whether it gets in their bank account today or on Friday (they waste no time depositing that freakin check, i'll tell ya), so I wouldn't be worried at all. Just call and tell them it is on its way.
That said, if someone has information contradictory to my (semi-educated) assumptions, then please post.
