    So I withdrew from all schools except one by May 15th. Received confirmation emails from each school. And this morning, one of the schools sends me an email telling me I need to inform them of a decision cuz I'm holding multiple schools etc. So now I'm freaking out, trying to find out if my status at my school of choice has been jeopardized. I called them, but the person who could help me was in a meeting. I emailed them too, but anyways I'm freaking out. Can they and will they really drop me without notifying me first?

    If you still have the confirmation e-mail from the school that mistakenly didn't withdraw you, I would think you have nothing to worry about. I think you would be fine regardless though.

    Thanks for the response. Withdrawn school still has not responded, but my school of choice just called me and let me know everything is cool and that they will disregard my holding of the "other acceptance." So I guess you guys can comment on a hypothetical situation or something, cuz I'm in the clear. :D

    Nah, they still want you to choose them. Just e-mail them and ask what schools it says you're holding at, tell them you already withdrew, and tell them you've chosen them and you'll recontact those schools.

    Dartmouth did the same thing to me a couple of days ago, and it worked out just fine.

    When I had asked Christian Essman at Case about the situation, he said that it's funny how concerned people get. In his words, "you spend a year applying and there's all these hoops to jump through. Then you get accepted, but you're just used to it and figure there must be more hoops to jump through. But there aren't. It's much simpler now."

    As has been said, if schools you hold an acceptance at see you're accepted elsewhere, they will contact you before they just yank you from the roster.

    I <3 Christian. He's so nice. He and Dr. Mehta make Case just that much more awesome by being so laid back.

    This may be true at Case, but not all schools might have this positive attitude. However, as long as you don't withdraw then ask for your spot back, I think you're safe.

    Actually, I know of somebody this cycle who withdrew and then changed his mind and then got that same school to agree to let him come anyway.

    But I agree with you on the general principle - it varies from school to school. If you're at all worried, just send an email to your actual choice telling them that they are your pick and that the other schools are in the process of withdrawing you.
