Posting for a friend (since I couldn't come up with an authoritative answer!):

if one applies to a # of jobs and gets offered one that isn't one's top
choice, while still waiting for the offer (or refusal) of the top choice...
how does one tell the company offering the job that one can't give a
definite answer until a certain date?  Is it adequate/acceptable to simply
say "I can't answer until ----" ??

Thanks for all input!

Cathy
