Reapplying to private school at a later date
I wonder if anyone has any experience with the following:
We are currently applying to Kindergarten and are leaning towards public school, however we are interested in a particular independent school.
If we apply and are accepted to both our desired public and private school but choose the public school, would the private school consider us at a later date, say late elementary school or middle school? Or once we make a different choice, they are unlikely to consider our application again? I know there are many hypotheticals in this equation but was curious if anyone had first-hand experience.
