I have applied to a couple of grad schools in Rounds 1 and 2 and have been accepted. I am currently applying to other schools for Round 3.
The problem is that the deposits for the schools I have already been accepted to are due in a week, but I will not have heard back from the other schools.
I don't want to take a risk by rejecting these offers so I don't know what I should do. Should I accept these offers and pay the deposits for now as I wait for a decision from the other schools? I have heard that accepting an offer and paying a deposit then changing your mind is frowned upon and you may even get blacklisted by the university, is that true?
