almuhajaba -- why did you withdraw from IU-B and Cornell? Surely your numbers would get you some scholarship money. I'm sure that Yale acceptance had nothing to do with it.
I urge the dissenters to read my original post. If you have DECIDED that some school is not for you, or you have gotten into a better one that you like more, you should withdraw so other people have a chance at the seat you are hanging onto. No one said do not evaluate your options; but let's also not wait until after seat deposits are due to tell schools you are not interested. If you aren't interested in their school anymore, and you have no intention of going there, I state my original question: why not withdraw?
