So I have a bit of a problem on my hands. So far I've gotten into both schools I've interviewed at (Tufts and BU) but these schools are my last two choices. I'm getting married this summer and my fiance works in NYC and owns his own place outside of the city. Plus, my whole family is from NY and NJ and I want to be in that area (and I'm sick of boston!). My issue is that my interview for Columbia is on 12/23 and my UMDNJ interview is on 1/20. I have to respond to Tufts and BU by the beginning of January. I don't want to loose the $ on the deposits to schools that it would be REALLY inconvient for me to go to but I also don't want to not sent in $ and then not get in anywhere else! How soon do you think I'd hear from Columbia after my interview? Is it worth the gamble?
