I believe the second deposit is due June 1st. The first deposit was sometime in May.
Anyone has gotten off the WL?

Based on the WL Q/A, it’s just May and June. So after that, they will have an idea of how many slots are available.
just spoke to admissions officer today and they said the 2nd seat deposit deadline is June 1st but they don't think there will be much WL movement :(
