Getting a 3.5 at an Ivy League school is definitely not the same as getting a 4.0 at Sister Mary's School for the Dumb, Deaf and Blind. (I didn't want to name any institutions, but everyone knows what I'm saying). Getting rid of the GPA is a great idea.
Thanks for the responses. I was just attempting to set a timetable as far as when I should begin to make a final decision. I'm quite flexible and could wait around quite awhile, so hopefully that will help me out. Thanks again.
You can send e-mails or do so over the phone, I imagine form letters also if you want to spend that much time. I just withdrew from about five schools today and did so by just sending e-mails to the admissions people who incessantly sent me e-mails.
