I interviewed at LSU and UTHSC in Memphis. I was accepted on the spot during the LSU interview. I turned them down for UTHSC, as it was my first choice. Usually, programs give you anywhere from a week to a month to decide to attend the program. If the program deadlines are spaced far apart, there is really no way around it. The only way to see if you get accepted at another program is to pay the deposit that LSU requires if accepted. If you choose a different program, you will loose that deposit.
