I'm sorry it took so long for me to withdraw. I had a personal reason for considering USC (and UCLA) for this long, and as a result I could not withdraw from either school until now. Better late than never though, right? If you want to know why I had to stay in consideration until now, send me a PM.
Good luck to those of you still waiting. I hope my spot goes to someone on TLS.
No need to be apologetic, getting an acceptance means you get to hold onto it until you're good and ready. I don't think some TLSers grasp the concept of yield anticipation; individuals holding onto their acceptances doesn't greatly affect how many more people they admit, because they admit many many more than they expect to accept.
