And I'm reacting because I'm irritated with the people who have been telling/asking me to withdraw from schools. So maybe you didn't aim this directly at me, but you're getting my opinion on it anyway.
And if you really don't want comments from the peanut gallery, don't post on a message board.
Let us play our cards with our cycles and you play yours. If you dont like it then retake. Im not even considering withdrawing from BU, this is just a general gripe I have. I'm on the Cornell WL but I dont bitch at them to withdraw - kudos to them for having more impressive numbers than me, they've earned the right to do whatever they want with their acceptances.
Both of you are comletely missing my point. Of course you should be weighing you options and playing your cards. I was not implying that anyone should rush their decision. As per the original statement
"In today around 2:30
I'll probably be withdrawing soon so I hope one of you WL-ers can take my spot."
This clearly states that he will probably withdraw. From this you can deduce that such a decision had already been pondered, options weighed, better offers available etc etc. MY questions was based off of this statement of intent. If the OP had no intent of attending, why had he not withdrawn his application earlier. HOWEVER, he answered this question concisely and sufficiently with his initial response. That was all that was needed. He had a reason. I was not rushing, I was inquiring about a thought proccess. So once again, the arguement you are having was not brought by me. I can understand your frustration with being asked to constantly withdraw or being rushed, and I'm glad I inadvertently helped you to vent that out. But directing your frustrations at me just seems unnecessary. Anyway, Enjoy weighing your options. Best of luck if anything is pending.
