You really withdrew from your top choice because you were tired of waiting? I understand being annoyed, but it seems like it's worth putting up with a few weeks of annoyance in exchange for going to your preferred law school for three years.
Where are you going next year?
Well it was tied for top choice with Columbia, which is where I'll be going. There were obviously several other reasons why I ended up choosing Columbia, the finaid was just a part of it.
If you had more than one top choice, then that makes sense.
By the way, I'm sorry for the way I phrased my question. I just reread my post and cringed. The tone was a little more blunt and aggressive than I intended.
And congratulations on CLS! It seems like an amazing law school.
If I don't hear back tomorrow, i'm withdrawing as well. Not passing up a better school for sticker at Berkeley. Especially since I've been there and done that for undergrad.
