the adcomm doesn't have some pot of scholly money that they're required to spend. But they do have an idea of how much scholarship they can distribute in relation to the revenue they're bringing in. And they have target GPA/LSAT medians they're trying to hit, which is usually achieved by spending scholarship money.
So maybe they won't be like "oh shit X withdrew, we must give her $ to someone else"
But the withdrawal of one applicant could definitely have an impact on the medians and the scholarship-versus-revenue calculus, which could lead to them increasing someone else's award in order to keep the same median and perhaps admitting another applicant to compensate on the revenue side
Either way, this is clearly a case of an 0L leaving well-wishes to his/her peers who are still in the pool, which i don't think is deserving of snark.
Lets try to keep the sarcasm to a minimum in this thread, we were all 0L's once. And that's not exactly the type of culture that we (or the adcomm) advertise about our school, so lets practice what we preach
. It's possible to give good advice/insight in a positive way, just like the older WUSTL students did for us

Good luck to wherever you end up!
