    Hello! So I just got an acceptance letter from a pharmacy school (let’s call it school A). The letter states that I need to pay my deposit by Nov 29th or I can ask to be waitlisted if I don’t want to make a decision yet.
    So school A is actually my second choice and I’m awaiting an interview for my #1 choice (let’s call it school B); the interview is towards the end of Jan 2019. I also have another interview in Jan (school C).
    I am totally stressed out and unsure if I should just pay my $500 deposit for school A just so I can reserve a spot or I should await interviews for school B or C. My biggest fear is that I’m going to end up being waitlisted for all schools. Please help!
    Also, can someone explain to me how waitlist works? Is it based on priority or is it randomized? Thank you

    Pay the deposit. Being on the waitlist means they consider people on the list and rank them. So the people at the top get considered first when someone drops their spot. And this is mostly done after everyone uas been interviewed. So i would say pay the deposit. Are u really sure about a spot in the other schools. You might go for the interview and not like it.
