Admissions Officials Lament Practice of Signing On With More Than One College </p>

Published: May 20, 2006</p>

<p>The envelope arrived at Allegheny College the first week of May. Inside was a form signed by a high school senior accepting admission. Inside, too, was a $500 check — made out to St. Lawrence University.</p>

<p>It turned out, said Scott Friedhoff, who oversees admissions at Allegheny, that the student had accepted admission offers from both colleges, and made deposits to each.</p>

<p>The incident is one example of the largely subterranean practice of double depositing — when high school seniors and their parents try to get around the May 1 deadline for accepting admission offers. At most colleges, double depositing is against the rules. Many admissions officials say they believe the practice is growing. And they say it is unfair.
