I was planning to go to University of Illinois for Fall 2015 but have recently been considering University of Washington. However, after completing both applications I realized that I won't get my acceptance decision until April for University of Illinois and June/July for University of Washington. For both colleges, I have to make my decision within 3 weeks of receiving my acceptance. Now this is a problem because I won't be recieving Washington's decision for at least 2 months after Illinois'. I really want to go to Washington but I am not 100% sure I will get into their mechanical engineering program.
Does anyone know what I can do in this situation?
I was thinking of accepting UofI's decision and if I do get into Washington, I could pay the fee to decline UofI's. However, I cannot find any information on the topic of acceptance cancellation. If anyone could give me some insite on what to do that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
