no such thing for dental... you can put desposits for as many schools... but that sucks for waitlisters :mad: :mad: :idea: they are waiting for you to give up the seat

Every school have a different deposit date. They make the offer to the applicants and at this time they give a month or less to make the first deposit, and then another month to make the second deposit. Even after making both deposit people pull out sometimes.

Basically, if you are on the waiting list, you can get an acceptance a week before school starts :eek: which sux :thumbdown:

Dental schools do have individual dates that deposits are required, and these vary from school to school. Dental schools do NOT, however, have a date where you must choose your final school. You can hang on to multiple acceptances until (and even after) starting at another school.
