That's an awfully quick and high-pressure deadline when I haven't even heard from all the schools to which I applied.

Good to know, thanks!
The "intent to enroll" form is just that, a form stating that you intend to enroll, not an actual enrollment - it doesn't require that you withdraw from any other school, or in fact enroll.
I wonder. The form itself has two options: either "I accept the offer and will be enrolling" or "I will not be enrolling". That doesn't seem to give wiggle room. But if Dean Asha is correct, it still can't proscribe me from accepting alternate, subsequent offers.
I emailed Georgetown to try and clarify. We'll see, though I wonder if I should have just said nothing and just submitted it.
