Anyone getting mail from schools they declined offers from?
« on: April 22, 2005, 01:03:17 PM »
I hit the mail jackpot yesterday with mail from 4 schools (when it rains, it pours)! The strange thing about it was that I declined offers from all 4 schools. A couple were log-in information for incoming 1Ls. Another actually had information about paying my bill monthy and they gave me a full scholarship. Anyone else still getting this stuff in the mail?

Lots of "please go to our school, it's so neat-o" letters from Hastings!

I actaully got a t-shirt in the mail from Capital about three weeks after I declined their offer.  It was a XX-Large, so it makes a good cleaning rag. 
2-accept. (NESL, Capital)
6(ouch! eh, I take it.)-rejections
1-waitlists
Attending: NESL

Got a couple more scholarship offers from the financial aid office of OSU even though I already withdrew.

Just yesterday I got something from Tulane for incoming 1L's...I keep getting mail from many of the schools that I've declined.  The only schools I'm not getting mail from are the University of Arizona (I figure I'll keep waiting for their acceptance--or more likely their rejection at this point--even though I'm going somewhere else, I feel like if I've waited this long I should at least get to find out if they're going to accept me) and Rutgers-Newark, the school I'm actually GOING TO next year.  What's up with that?

Recently, I've gotten e-mails from them about scholarship info. :P

I don't think the admissions offices update their records often and they certainly don't seem to share info with financial aid or housing offices. I have a full mailbox everyday from schools from which I've withdrawn. Pepperdine, Widener, and Golden Gate are the worst offenders.
