I'm in a situation where my top choice put me on a waitlist. I have acceptance to another school, whose deposit deadline is very soon. Can I pay the deposit, but if I get accepted to my top choice, decline enrollment to the #2 school?

Also, how should I go about declining enrollment after paying deposit? I know this may be getting ahead of myself, but I just want to be prepared if the moment arises.

Obviously you would lose the deposit. Just send a quick email to admissions declining your spot. No big deal.

Of course you can. This is your education after all! And don't worry about the school. Happens all the time. An email should be fine. They will just go to the next person on their list.
