Hey all, I recently sent out a deposit to hold a place at a medical school I was accepted to in late October. I'd be happy to go here, but am still waiting to hear from many other schools. I was surprised because I thought the deposit was refundable until May. My presumption was that they would simply hold on to it and not cash it if I withdrew prior to the non-refundable date. If I do end up withdrawing, how do I get my money back? Is it typical for schools to do this? I wasn't figuring this into my finances. Should I expect for whatever money I send out when holding places to be deducted from my bank account?
