The only instance I can see myself doing this if under ED/contractual obligation.
I totally didn't want to know! I figured you can only get so lucky, and this way I could go to a school I'd be super happy with and also be able to say that technically no one rejected me.
Well, actually part of me did want to know but... [see reasoning just above]

Also this. I thought maybe formally withdrawing would keep me from obsessively stalking TLS forums for the schools in question. Fail on that account.
