    Hey. I haven't been accepted to those schools (or anywhere) yet.... so I am not sure if this holds true.
    But I read in other threads that some schools require it earlier than jan 15th even if its regularly stated that or you can lose your spot.

    I don't know if you knew this already adn already checked it out but if you haven't maybe make sure its not actually jan 15th....

    Ahh I'm in the same position! I'm trying to decide between Pitt, Penn, and UCLA. Jan 15th is coming fast and I still don't know where to go!

    UIC deposit is $300, so if you really REALLY can't decide, send in both. $300 is a small price to pay if it may change the rest of your life.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one! I can't decide between Penn and Tufts and have no idea how I will reach a decision :shrug:

    Okay I know the title was "who HASN'T sent in deposit" but ... man, that $1000 I sent NJDS ... that was the single largest check I have ever written in my life. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to save up enough in time, but by the skin of my teeth I did. Hopefully I'll be able to make the second $1000 by May. (I work full time but have other bills to pay too, so 1 grand isn't just easy to part with.) But at least it'll feel good to have $2000 of tuition already paid when I start school in August.

    The schools office of admissions I think??? needs to ahve it received and processed by that date. You have to send your deposit in by like January 8-9 for them to getb your deposit on time.

    ak47, i think somethin+ made a good point. IDK how much penn's deposit is, but putting $300 down on UIC (very moderate compared to other schools) and putting the deposit on penn also might be your best bet. Then just keep talkin to friends and family next semester, and then decide. The last thing you want dude is if you're too late sending in a deposit, and then God forbid you lose your spot (after 4 years of hard work!!!) :eek::eek:

    i called today to ask about my deposit at UMaryland (I RAN it there last friday). i spoke with a nice lady whose name i now forget but she assured me my name was on "the list". she said the reason that it hasnt posted in my bank acct is becasue there is some time to process it; the check goes thru the central um-balt cashier office. i would call just to double check, it wont hurt and you will sleep much better! i know i did!:D
