So, now that decisions are starting to roll in, we can start wringing our hands about the decisions that may or may not make us poor for the remainder of this decade, as well as the lion's share of the next (counting loans).
Are any of the schools asking for deposits right away? So far I've only heard from Rutgers (complete package, doesn't seem they require a deposit) and NYU (just the electronic acceptance letter with a link to their accepted students package--don't remember reading about a deposit.)
My current plan is to accept at Rutgers (because that's where I really want to go) and if I'm thrown a financial curveball, I will keep another in my back pocket (probably Hunter--HOORAY for NY residency!)
Anyone else have a strategy for dealing with the information/deadline mismatch?
