Just so you know, even if people withdraw that may free up scholarship money. Dean Pless from Illinois talked (when he was still on this site) about how he would offer many times more scholarship money than they actually had from the outset, knowing statistically that enough folks were likely to withdraw even with that much money that they wouldn't overspend, or at least, wouldn't overspend too badly. I've also seen comments on here indicating other schools also do this.
People withdrawing wouldn't really help much unless a lot more people did it than expected. Otherwise most of their money is probably already spoken for, sorry.
