Withdrew already. Hope a TLS person gets in.

Why would you immediately withdraw? Or, said another way, why didn't you withdraw when you decided you wouldn't go to Cornell if you got in?
edited out a douchebag statement.
Seriously I should have withdrawn but cornell admissions pissed me off so much I just wanted to reject them. I would have considered them at one time but making people who applied 5 months ago wait until after seat deposit deadlines is a crappy move and that completely turned me off from them. Maybe I wouldn't care if I was an anamoly but it seems standard operating procedure over there.
I can resonate with this. Not with Cornell, thankfully. Somehow I was part of the chosen few. But I stuck it out with UCLA even though I knew I was not going. It's a matter of closure, really. Took them until this Tuesday to give me a decision. It takes at least some effort to apply, even if you got a fee waiver. Might as well make them do their part, especially when they make you wait for an ungodly amount of time.
