Any one else still making changes to fall plans?

    I was sure that I was set for fall, still looking for a place to live, but otherwise getting things together for one school, when my first choice called this past week. It was laughable because I had already submitted a really high non-refundable deposit and really didn't think about changing my mind until they called me back and offered a really nice scholarship that is triple of my deposit, so I'm changing. Is anyone else still making moves like this? I sent my deposit to my first choice today and as soon as they notify me they've received it I will notify the other school, which will open up another space for someone.

    Mine wasn't that recent, but I had already rejected Creighton when they offered me a scholarship and also sent a form for me to apply for a second scholarship. I accepted their offer.

    I paid $2,000 for one school that I was set on since Feb and then recently I got accepted to my 1st choice. My 1st choice isn't offering me any grants/scholarships and neither did the other school. I went ahead and paid the deposit for my 1st choice school and will be attending it. Sucks to lose $2,000:mad:!

    It happens quite a bit. That's one reason why there's a deposit at all; if schools lose someone after another school offers, then they at least get a few bucks out of said person.

    Schools have a long alternate list filled with people who'll gladly take your spot. The schools won't hold any malice towards anyone who switches after accepting an offer of admission.

    On the other side, many people apply to more than one school which means that a significant fraction of those people get multiple acceptances at different times. Some school has to be rejected. I suppose we don't hear as many stories like yours here because of fear of retribution from the rejected school or something.:D
