    Deposit due while still waiting on response from top choice school

    Advertisements



    Hello all,

    I was recently accepted to AUA and my deposit is due in a couple of weeks. I was also just granted an interview at SGU (my top choice school) for next week. I am having a dilemma now. AUA refuses to give me an extension for payment of the deposit, but if I am accepted to SGU, I will surely turn down my AUA offer. In short, I don't want to waste money on this nonrefundable deposit to hold my seat at AUA just to end up turning it down for SGU if I am accepted. I also don't want to risk losing my seat at AUA in case I am denied at SGU. Do you think I should let SGU know about this so that they may possibly give me an expedited response? I am afraid doing such a thing may hurt my chances and I feel that asking them to give me a quick response is out of line and borderline disrespectful. I just don't know what to do because I am not in the financial position to waste money on a deposit for a school that I may not end up attending. Any advice?

    I would explain to your SGU Admissions Counselor your situation and ask approximately how many of SGU applicants who are interviewed, are offered acceptance. I believe it is a high proportion and if you prepare for the interview well, you have a high likelihood of getting accepted to SGU and you should forego the seat at AUA. I believe at this time they are taking very little time after the interview ends to call with a final decision (4-5 days).

    I know that I am really late... When I applied to AUA I was waiting to take the MCAT (again) and applying in the US as well. I was accepted to AUA shortly after my interview and at that time I was still waiting for my MCAT score to come back so I paid the deposit. My goal/dream of becoming a Doctor was too important to risk. I couldn't imagine not getting into any program all together... The BEST $500.00 I ever spent!

    Good luck to you!
