Has anybody waited to hear if you've gotten accepted into a program, only to receive a letter of "conditional acceptance"?
I could have read the admissions more clearly on the university's website, or my advisor could have offered more details, but regardless, I was surprised at the $150 deposit, $155 criminal background check/drug screen, and required laptop purchase through the university upon final acceptance.
Not that I am totally complaining- I got in! But I wasn't prepared for these expenses (I actually launched an Indiegogo fundraising campaign to ask my family and friends for help- I'm also pregnant and taking classes, so needless to say, I didn't have the money and was able to cover it by fundraising) and I'm wondering what other processes people have had to go through upon acceptance to their programs. Just for some perspective.

What on earth are they going to have you do with a computer that costs almost $2000? I have a clearance PC that cost me $280 and it does everything I need to do for school.
