Do people actually get off waitlists? in Speech-Language Pathology Posted April 4, 2018 50 minutes ago, IndigoSky said: So, April 15 is coming up and it doesn't seem like I'll be getting off of the waitlist for some of the schools that I want to get into. I'm about to accept an offer super far away from home (in Texas); is there a way to accept the offer and not put in the deposit to a little while until I completely hear back from the waiting list from my top school? Or is it not worth the wait at this point?? There's a thread about this on the main SLP page. You can totally put down a deposit and rescind, you'll just lose your deposit. You can call your dream school and ask when the latest is you would hear back.
