I don't think UVA has such policies so if you get caught, your decision on which school to attend is made. Unless I am wrong about UVA, that is.
With one clearly her first choice and we deposited. Her second choice school athletic coach called her and said if she could send her a tape by the end of July, she would PROBABLY let her on the team. (My daughter could not go to tryouts due to recovering from a knee reconstruction surgery). Well, if she gets on the team she would go to her second choice school...but she won't know till July.
To make a decision by May 1 without having the financial aid information is teaching your children to be financially irresponsible.
dte, if the coach at school B is sufficiently interested in your D--and able--to arrange for your D to be treated like a student on the wait list, then your problem is solved.
Is it fair to keep someone on a waiting list until early August so the college can get exactly the class make up it wants? Of course not, but it happened to us.
Schools do what is convenient and beneficial for them and parents should do the same.
I think in some circumstances double depositing is fine, not unethical.
enroll in a school and cancel your enrollment before May 1st?
I affirm that I will send an enrollment deposit (or equivalent) to only one institution; sending multiple deposits (or equivalent) may result in the withdrawal of my
admission offers from all institutions. [Note: students may send an enrollment deposit (or equivalent) to a second institution where they have been admitted from
the waitlist, provided that they inform the first institution that they will no longer be enrolling.]
