Time to accept/decline by on the 15th

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, this may be a stupid question, but when should we accept/decline an offer on the 15th? Generally speaking, is it okay to wait until 11:59 PM to make a decision? Or should we decide by, say, 5 PM, before the faculty gets off from work?

I'm currently on two waitlists and am hoping to hear from them before the 15th ends, and I'm not looking to do the whole "accept now, back out later" thing.

Also, how normal is it to ask the program that offered you admission for an extension? I've seen people call it disrespectful because you're basically telling them that they're only a backup and if given a choice, you wouldn't choose them. But with the 15th arriving very soon, the prospect of getting a decision after the 15th is really scaring me...

Would love to hear what you guys think. And good luck with your own decisions!
