If you get accepted to a safety round 1, but then waitlisted at a tier 1 school round 2, at what point would you have to commit to the safety? Are deposit deadlines published?

Deposits for round 1 are before the round 2 decisions are made since it helps them know how “full” is the class. People generally pay them and loose the money if accepted to their “dream" school.

I’ve seen people switch programs as late as the day classes start. People eat the deposits unfortunately

Deposit is such a low percentage of the total cost that it's worth eating to go to a school you prefer.

Deadlines are published.

@sc1, I've seen dates for application deadlines and decisions but where can I find the dates for deposits?

Round 1 is around the early Feb time frame

@op every school i looked at it published it in the same general area as the app deadlines. If for some reason they stopped publishing that or you can't find it, i'm sure you could email the school to find out

I wouldn't even consider any safeties. Go for a school you'll definitely attend, not because you're forced to because you have no other option.
