So I was accepted to one school, should I inform the others?

So today I got an email from UConn saying I was accepted (hooray) and if I want to enroll there I need to complete a form within the next week. I am interested itn going there, but I also applied to BU and BC and I am curious to see if I would get in there. The problem is that, due to a seemingly perfect storm of problems with LSAC, My BU and BC applications weren't completed until today. So if they take as fast as UConn, it would take them about a week to let me know.

So my question is, should I tell BU and BC that I was accepted to another school and have a week to enroll, but that I want to go to their school or is that uncool?

Oh and since I have already made a topic, does anyone else have a school that doesn't do cumulative GPA on their transcripts? My school apparently doesn't (as well as doesn't do rank...) and BC is asking me to resend my transcript to include cumulative GPA. So I'm going call my Registrar tomorrow and ask if they do cumulative GPA. but if they simply don't do it for 1L, should I just tell BC that my school doesn't do it? I can't think of anything else to say.

RE: your GPA -- Schools that don't have cumulative GPAs or ranks or something like that usually mention it in the official transcript or in the letter of good standing from the dean. Make sure your home school conveys that to your transferring school somehow. Worst case, have them send an additional letter about it.
