Early Withdrawal: Now's the time, please.

Postby foxyeconomist » Wed Mar 17, 2010 12:27 pm

Make sure you're doing fellow TLSers a favor by withdrawing from your safeties or schools that you've decided against attending. Many of us are on waitlists and would kill to go to your safeties.

Maybe you've got a boatload of acceptances and it's too early to decide which school you'll attend. If that's the case, maybe you are ready to withdraw from one or two of the schools. I imagine it would be a huge help to admissions officers as well as waitlisted/pending applicants.

I withdrew from Minnesota and USF yesterday. I plan on withdrawing from one more next week. I'm hoping to get off the waitlist at Berkeley, so if you're holding onto an acceptance you don't want, think of me -or someone you like better than me- who is stuck on the waitlist.

Tell us where you withdrew/plan on withdrawing, so we can get our hopes up prematurely.

agreed. 6 w/d's for me so far. admissions folks have been very appreciative. this is especially good to do if you are turning down $.

Withdrawing doesn't open a spot. Schools give out 3 to 4 times as many admits as they have seats. They won't start pulling from the WL until after the deposit deadline.

Right (except w/r/t merit $). It's just the right thing to do out of professional courtesy.

Yes please do not hold onto a UCLA seat if you don't want it. Please. You don't understand how financially UCLA would save me.

I forgot to mention I'm freeing up a $30k renewable scholarship at MN and $27k renewable scholarship at USF. Fingers crossed that they go to deserving TLSers.

Not even for merit aid.
