...I'm not bothering since it's so close to deadlines anyway.  If they don't here from me, they'll give my spot to someone else.

How far into  your cycle did you turn down schools?  What's the rule of thumb on the time-line?  Way before the deposit day? or can we get away with an email the day of?

I withdrew as soon as I knew I wouldn't wind up attending. Not sending in a deposit or asking for an extension are probably just as effective as a withdrawal.

Asking for an extension is taken as withdrawing? Really? i was going to see if Hastings would extend their April 1st deadline since I JUST got in, and want to visit USC before deciding...

You can ask for extensions. My cousin did this last cycle and was granted them for several schools when she was trying to decide which program she should attend. She ended up passing over Tulane and Miami to attend St. Johns and is really happy she got to visit all of the schools, talk to students and decide how each program would help her eventual goals.

That's true ... is that considered rude, though?  Or do they kind of expect it?
