you aren't really committing until the tuition is due. so, until payment is due i would do what is asked and attend any orientations. this is a business decision and quite professional. if you get an acceptance from the school you really want to get into, then you call and withdraw from the other schools
as soon as you know your final plans in order to give them time to contact the next person on their waiting list for the opportunity to attend their school. until then, you don't need to tell any of these schools anything about your plans. that's not how the business world works.

mind. :icon_roll that has a sexual connotation. just what did you mean? :stone
