    ...and sent in the check, but decide to accept an offer somewhere else. Lets say I accepted at Buffalo, but then I accept an offer somewhere else as well (send the check and all). Can I do that?

    yeah...but you'll lose that deposit you made at buffalo. send something to buffalo in writing (via e-mail or snail mail) explaining your new intentions so they may offer your seat to someone else.

    No guys, I haven't gotten in anywhere yet, but I just wanted to know if that would be a wrong thing to do. It's just that the location of the other schools where I have applied, have religious congregations. Living in NC, I travel once a month to Virginia for that, we are supposed to attend everyday. In Buffalo, I would have to travel to Toronto. At this point I am still attending Buffalo (a very nice school), but my dad wanted me to try the other schools.

    It's not necessarily a "wrong" thing to do. You should just inform which ever school you're not choosing of this so that they can give someone else a seat. And just make sure you make a decision and let schools know of this by May 1st - otherwise you risk the possibility of losing your spot at both.

    if you decide to go anywhere else besides buffalo, you can get your deposit back from buffalo anytime before 4/1 i think. Thats one great plus about UB, they are the only school I've heard of that allows their deposit to be refunded. You probably just need to call or email barbara at UB and she will give you your money back.

    It's not wrong, just get it done as fast as possible to open up the seat for someone else.

    Maybe at some schools, but certainly not all.
