Accepting more than one offer?


LG13

I have multiple offers from Columbia, Berkeley, NYU and Stanford.

I am going to need a few weeks to sort out living on the west coast vs east. What happens if I accept two (or all) and then make up my mind? I really don't want to drag this out to long as I know people are on waitlists. I just need an extra week or so. I completely understand that I will lose my deposits. Are there any other ramifications in this course of action?

I have not seen that anywhere in the terms. Where did you see this?

I think it is better to ask some extra time rather than accepting an offer and not going through with it.

You can't:


If you are offered admission, Stanford reserves the right to withdraw that offer of admission (even after enrolled attendance) if: 1) you show a significant drop in academic performance or fail to graduate; 2) there has been a misrepresentation in the Stanford Law School (SLS) application process; 3) we learn that you have engaged in behavior prior to the first day of enrolled SLS attendance that indicates a serious lack of judgment or integrity; or 4) you reserve a place in our entering class and make an enrollment commitment or place a deposit at another law school. Stanford further reserves the right to require you to provide additional information and/or authorization for the release of information about such matter.
