    @frisbee3 I found my way tonight to this thread called "Schools Released". Hopefully there is school on your list mentioned in it.

    @AbigCurveBall Sorry for the delay. I took a few days off to just enjoy my family for Easter.

    My D had been accepted to UCF back in Dec and had already received her FA for academics. Someone from another forum mentioned that they had asked and that the dept aid wouldn't be final until later in the summer.

    Best of luck for you on the other wl.

    Looking for information on Ball State Priority Waitlist and Syracuse Syracuse waitlist (both MT). Does anyone know anything about possibility of movement on these two schools? We have narrowed her acceptance offers down to one final school and cannot help and wonder if we should just go for that or keep waiting.

    Honestly, I don't think anyone will know much about the waitlist at any school.

    Secondly, it is not like you give up the waitlist school when you commit to one of the accepted schools. You have until May 1 to put your deposit down at an accepted school. However, if a waitlist school makes an offer later down the line (and most waitlist movement is after May 1 when a school can ascertain their yield), you are allowed to take the offer from the waitlist school and let your original school know you will no longer be attending. You do lose your deposit, however. But this is how it officially works. Then, there is a domino effect when you give up your original school and then they will go to THEIR waitlist, etc.

    @soozievt I believe select schools have extended, for this year, the deposit date from May 1st to June 1st (due to the coronavirus pandemic) but not all schools have done this... so this needs to be re-evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

    @Twelfthman, that is correct that some schools extended the deposit date until June 1. But the advice is the same no matter the reply date. The quandary for the person who posted the question should not be whether to commit to an accepted school or wait to hear from the waitlist school. They should commit to an accepted school, but that doesn't mean giving up on the WL school as that result will come out later (most likely after the reply date whether it be May 1 or June 1 for that particular school this year), and an offer, if given, can be accepted at that point, even if one committed to a college by the reply date.

    This is for Musical Theater which is often an audition based major and not an indicator of movement on a college wide waitlist
