Withdrawing applications

Postby applepiecrust » Thu Jan 06, 2011 10:15 pm

This might be an incredibly stupid question but how does one withdraw applications? Just send an email saying you want to withdraw the application?
Do you need to give any details?

Also, after a binding ED decision, do you also need to withdraw from other schools that already accepted you?

Yes; details are not required. Yes (assuming the ED decision was an acceptance).

There are actually lots of threads on this if you search the forum.

Some people like to send an elaborate email, others just one sentence. Really anything will do as long as it's clear you're withdrawing.

Respect, NZA.
Between this and your fantastic stalking skills, I'm not sure what law schools are thinking by not rushing to send you acceptance letters!

P.S. Thanks, everyone.

This is the greatest thing I've ever read. Don't forget to constantly swap their status out with ambiguous and seemingly random "updates" and change the completion date from time to time.

You give way too much thought to how you should withdraw when you need to just do it. At this rate, you'll be a dad before law school's out.

Meh, I liked your first version better. It opened you up to more jokes about GTown and slow-witted children...

Though my being a dad would take some serious miracles, so I'd be interested in seeing that happen!

+1. The only caveat is, if you applied to Harvard, they want a snail mail withdrawal. I'm pretty sure most other schools will take email. Also,
