Waitlisted and questions

<p>I am putted into wailists. But what confused me is why the college urged me to send a deposit to another college of my choice.</p>

<p>You can still go to the waitlisted college if you get in, even if you make a deposit at another school. This happens ALL the time and is perfectly acceptable. Yes you will lose the deposit, but its SMALL price to pay as opposed to not getting into -any- schools if you dont have a backup.</p>

<p>You wont hear from your waitlist college until at ealiest mid may and by then the colleges that have accepted you will expect a deposit or they will have given up your seat to their waiting list.</p>
