HELP! Enrollment deadline before other school decisions [#permalink] New post 08 Dec 2013, 15:07
Hey guys,

I'm in a unique situation. I applied to UNC MBA program before completing my two other target schools Chicago Booth and Kellogg. UNC admitted me (thankfully) but the intent to enroll is due 12/31. I am just now completing the Chicago Booth and Northwestern applications. They likely wont be turned in until 12/11 (waiting on a recommender). It is now unlikely that I will receive a decision from Booth or Kellogg before 12/31. What do I do?? UNC is my backup school but Booth is my top choice.

Do I just pay the $1500 non refundable deposit and fill out the intent to enroll and withdrawal if I get into Booth?

What are the consequences of intending to enroll and then not enrolling? I am applying to all schools for the April 2014 Cohort.

Nothing happens if you withdraw your enrollment. You simply don't get your money back. I did it during my application season (paid deposit at Kellogg, enrolled at Booth). It's an externality of staggering your apps.

I know someone who was in a similar circumstance with another school, and the school agreed to extend the deadline. It would probably not hurt to ask since the worst they can say is no. (If they agree to extend it, I would ask them to send you a confirmation in writing just to be safe.)
