i've never had this explained to me so i just wanted to make sure that i have it right.

if i get into a school now and they say that i have to put down a deposit within a couple of weeks to hold my place, i pay it regardless of still waiting to hear from better schools, right?

then if i get a better acceptance in a few months, i withdraw from the first school and put a deposit in the second one?

these deposits aren't binding, right?

they are non refundable, but they aren't going to sue you for not attending.

actually, quite a few are refundable. the MSAR has info on which are and which aren't.
