All these great acceptances....

Postby Doritos » Fri Jan 15, 2010 7:55 pm

Two months after I formally withdrew all my apps due to getting in at Virginia ED. I mean I got like 5 acceptances some with scholarship offers. I sent every single one of the schools I applied to an email explaining that I'm withdrawing, why, and thanking them for their time and blah blah blah yet I still am getting acceptances AND emails from alums and professors. Anyone else have this happen? Should I contact them yet again and tell them I'm not going to their school?

Considering how shitty New Haven supposedly is, that may well be true.

i would make ur choice known by all means necessary to the safeties, wouldn't want it to come back and bite ya in the ass "as per ur contract". 'Sides, they can then distribute those funds to other ppl asap.

Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Chicago, Columbia, New York, Penn, Michigan, and Northwestern, possibly Duke.

Epic anti-uva trolling

Haha, I wish Yale was in Charlottesville. But mostly for the warmer climate. New Haven is gritty but it's a fun place to go to law school. But I have heard Charlottesville is amazingly fun.

Congrats on loving Virgina! You should probably just politely email the schools that send you these random acceptances reminding them of your withdrawals. I don't think you have anything to worry about regarding violation of contract, unless you accept at one of these other schools. As others have suggested, email the other schools because it is the morally right thing to do (especially because it will free up your scholarship money).
