You may be able to get away with it, but it probably would be best to wait until you accept the school's invitation so you are entered into their registrar's database. If it comes back you do not attend the school they charge the difference in retail and student prices to your credit card. I know this as well because I called them after ordering my powerbook and asked them if I needed to fax them my ID and I was told that they check with the university first, then if the university doesnt have you on record, they call and ask for a copy of a valid ID, and if you cant provide that they charge you the difference.

That's a shame, I wish they would they have put that on the site somewhere, I scoured around and couldn't find anything. Look's like I'm out $100 dollars.
