However, my hand has been forced because Emory’s deposit deadline is April 15th. Therefore, I just put down a $250 deposit that secures my spot in the Emory Law Class of 2009. The deposit isn’t binding because I am allowed to give up my spot and attend another school, but I would lose the deposit if I don’t attend Emory. If I do go, then it gets put towards my tuition. The next deadline is June 1st (I think $500 deposit due at that point), so I’ll hopefully know more about my status at the other schools when that deadline rolls around.
