    Hi,

    When a school accepts you and asks for a form for you to sign and return, what does that mean?

    I assume you can still be on waitlists for other schools, correct?

    I.e. that form is not a contract of any kind.

    Your acceptence of that school is not binding until May 15th. Beyond May 15th, you may still be on the waitlist at other schools, but once you are informed of a decision by those schools, you have to make up your mind quickly. Beyond May 15th, it is generally not acceptable to be holding multiple acceptences for longer than a day or two. Rumor has it that some schools will automatically withdraw you if you are holding acceptences to 2 or more schools come May 15th.

    One thing: you will lose your deposit if do not withdraw from a school before May 15th.

    You send the letter in just to give some sort of physical indication that they should hold the spot for you. Doing it over the phone isn't secure enough, so they require a signed letter. Your letter doesn't have to say that you will attend, just that you "accept" their acceptance. No legal stuff behind it. Congrats! :clap:
