The letter itself doesn't seem to spell it out, but I haven't checked Northwestern's online system for deposits (assuming they have one) to see if there is any language like that there. Assuming it's not, I'm still not totally sure I'm comfortable putting down a deposit and not withdrawing. It would be a disaster if all schools withdrew their offers...I may end up asking.
Just call and ask, don't say your name or anything. They will tell you. Be sure and get the persons name you talk to though.
They could always check your number, so use Skype and you'll be entirely anonymous.
...or drive to another state and find a pay phone at an out-of-the-way spot just to be really safe. Seriously, even if you called from your own phone and identified yourself, I don't think the fact that you have a big scholly at another T14 that you're considering taking will hurt your chances at HLS. It might even make you seem like a more desirable applicant and increase them.
My post was about calling Northwestern and asking about the requirements to accept the scholarship, not calling HLS>
