They're not giving it back.

They might(still doubt it) if there was an extenuating circumstance. But you can pretty much kiss it good bye. Sorry.

Pretty steep? What do you think about the $8500 deposit that Oxford asks for?

$8500? Seriously?

Wow... I only had to pay $1000.

I wonder if theres a correlation between yield % and deposit. To me $1000 says "we want to know if you are coming, but trust you'll come here if you say you are". $8500 says "were worried you might go elsewhere and we want to lock you in."

Yep, seriously. Of course, they include that in the total tuition tab later but still $8500 and later if you end up not going. Ouch!
