The acceptance letters have arrived and students are elated to make a choice and finally have closure about where they will go to college. Right? Well mostly right. Colleges have already begun notifying students on the wait list that they are offering admission to them. This means the student who thought he had closure has to make another decision. Do I stay or do I go?
The benefit of deciding to take the offer is that the student is getting in to his first choice college. The drawback is that the student will have to give up the deposit at the college to which they committed just days ago.
