I received, this morning, an e-mail from Neil Wixson at W&M. They seemed to be pushing for an answer. Did anyone else receive this e-mail? Honestly, I am VERY interested in W&M. Money becomes the major issue. I love the program, the town, the faculty....They offered me a scholarship for $5k. I appreciate it,but to be honest, I was a little disappointed. Most apps with my #'s were offered the fellowship. 1) How do the rest of you interpret this e-mail.2) Would it be proper/effective to hardball them back - I would be willing to drop all other apps if they extended an offer of the fellowship in addition to the $5k? I'm still waiting/optimistic concerning Boalt, but...
Yes, and I'm gonna withdraw.
I'm withdrawing as well. Would it be tacky to withdraw by reply to the email?
I'm not wd'ing 'til I have my BC aid offer...
I would say it is tacky. I'll withdrawal by a new email later today.

I will make my withdrawal contingent upon them giving you my offer
W&M seems to have forgotten that I applied. I haven't heard a word from them since I got my complete notice. I'll probably withdraw sometime next week.
