What is withdrawal procedure?  Do you write a letter?  Send in the postcard (that they included) saying you're not going?  Call them?  E-mail??

I tried to do it by phone and was told that they only accept withdrawals sent by carrier pigeon.  In a pinch, smoke signals might work, but I would follow up by pigeon as soon as possible.

That made me laugh out loud!  Good one!    :D

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Best Wishes,

Or you might send it by owl.

As per the OP's irritation with this school, I think it wouldn't hurt to express in your letter exactly why you are declining acceptance.  It's too late to help you have a better experience but if qualified candidates start turning them down for being rude/arrogant, some of the less "customer friendly" admissions offices might start to come around to the competitive world that they live in.  There's nothing inappriopriate in my mind about telling them what part of their process turned you off...
