I was accepted to Case on 12/3. I received post-Dec interview invites to two other schools, and I accepted them because one is a top choice for me, and I’m keeping my options open. Do you guys think I should keep the acceptance to myself during my interviews (assuming they ask about it)? Will admissions frown upon the fact that I’ve paid a deposit for a school already? I’d love your thoughts...comment or PM me pls :)

I think IF they ask about it, you should be honest. State simply the truth. Something like, "I have been accepted to another school, but THIS SCHOOL is my top choice. I would prefer to attend this school because of x, y, z."

Got my rejection from lecom today via snail mail. It's weird that I got rejected from the place where I felt like I interviewed best at and accepted to the one I felt like I did horrible lmao. Oh well :shrug:

If Lecom didn't work out I'm sure another school that is a better fit will.

Is there anyway to find out which school is requesting a background check? I just received an email from certiphi and I’m just curious as to what school is requesting it!

Have you filled out your profile? That might be it... but I'm not sure? maybe someone else can help with your messaging. But, I'm here when you get through!!

No, your profile is private. I just checked and I got an error message. Some people here put their profile on private and thus nobody can contact them.
