    NACAC does have dot.com in its suffix. Not dot.org or dot.edu

    You're confused. The website is http://www.nacacnet.org.

    NACAC is most definitely a non-profit organization made up of admissions folks from both the high school, non-profit, college/university, and consulting fields. This includes everyone from a rural Alaska public high school guidance counselor to the dean of admissions at some of the nation's tippy-top schools. You do have to pay membership fees, but these fees sustain the organization.

    Yes, but I suppose the ethics of this topic is probably timeless!

    Thread was recently bumped because a parent wants to double deposit while D waits to see if she will be picked up to play her sport

    The ethics of this sort of thing are quite clear cut.

    It's a good example of using the "What if everyone else behaved like this" test. Clearly that would be really really bad, so just because only a few people do it doesn't somehow make it acceptable. It just means that small minority is selfish.

    this thread was bumped up also
    because there is another new post about this "hold down deposit" issue
    regarding an oversea parent & student wanting to put down multiple deposits.
    oversea HS most likely will not report multi-transcripts issue to colleges here.

    Well, the coach emailed back, and she was very nice but no real assurance. So I think Consolation is right. A bird in hand is worth 2 in the bush.

    it would be a shame to keep your daughter hanging for another 3 months with the possibility of giving up her first choice and have no real assurances. I think she should just move on and enjoy the prospect of attending her first choice school. Perhaps she can lead the charge in doing her sport either as an intramural or a club team on her new campus!

    There shouldn't be a problem. Just let them know you made a mistake.
