Second Seat Deposit Waived!


I got lucky and was able to get my second seat deposit waived. I contacted the school and told them that I had no job and it would be difficult for me to come up with the funds needed for the second deposit. The mentioned that they had never waived deposits before (probably not true) and that they would talk to the dean and get back to me. I had already taken care of all my financial aid for the school and attended a new student picnic so they knew that I intended on attending their school. I was happy to get a phone call stating that they would waive my seat deposit and accept a brief letter explaining my financial situation in its place. I would recommend that anyone going to grad school at least try and get their deposit waived, but of course, only if they really can’t afford it. They actually asked me how I planned on paying for tuition if I could not even afford the seat deposit. I guess they forgot about the whole student loan thing. I doubt many people pay cash for grad school.
