Point being I know some programs require a non-refundable deposit about two weeks following admittance to affirm your status. Is there any leeway to this policy in order to find out results for other programs? If not, can you withdraw from a program (having paid the deposit) to accept admittance to another?
I have an interview for a program before most of the other programs even begin to look at applications. I may be counting my chickens before they hatch, but I'm just wondering if they will be understanding that I hold off accepting (<2 weeks) so I can attend any other interviews I may get.
