Some schools respond, whereas others simply update your status checker. If you don't hear back within a couple days, I'd follow up with the school via a phone call.

Aha! Yep, the status checker says withdrawn. Thanks!

Huh? I don't think you can withdraw from somewhere that has already rejected you... Unless you're accepted, W/L, or still pending, there's nothing to withdraw from.

We should start a "Where did you withdraw from today?" thread so people can see where spots have opened up and take heart!

Dear _______,

I respectfully decline your offer of admission.


Sincerely,
Golgothan.





I bet that admissions people prefer that over anything else.


Haha, while the above seems a bit extreme, I was always under the impression that short and sweet is the best.

Maybe:
Dear_____,

"While I appreciate the opportunity to apply to XXX law school, I would like to withdraw my application to your law school for the XXXX admissions cycle". My LSAC number is: ********

Sincerely,
Moxie

Should you write your letter differently if you are retaking the LSAT and want to apply again for next cycle?

Even though I'm not attending these schools, I still think it's important to be professional and grateful for the opportunities offered. The sample letters were really helpful, thanks!
