I personally contacted EVERY person on TLS who said they had been accepted to ASU and either said they withdrew or hadn't said anything about attending.
EVERY person but one said that they received the email from ASU asking them to reconsider. The one person that didn't receive the email said he told ASU admissions off for their unprofessional behavior when he withdrew.
Most of them said they weren't going to ASU no matter how much money they offered, a couple said they didn't trust ASU and this was a ploy, and two people said they responded wanting to know how much money before they would reconsider.
With an alpha of 0.05 and with ASU continuing their trend of accepting around 600 people, I can say with relative statistical certainty that they offered more scholarship money to almost everyone who withdrew.
