    Which schools are you accepted to and going to withdraw from? The sooner you know you wont be attending, it is nice of you to withdraw your app from that school to give space for your peers.

    thanks.

    I'm withdrawing from BU and Tufts (not holding my spot with $, if thats what withdrawing means). I'm not excepted anywhere else (sigh) I just have to hope that I get into a NY/NJ school because Boston is kind of an impossibility right now.

    Are u sure you dont want to at the very least hold one school down just in case you dont get into anywhere else. I mean if that were to occur, you would feel soooo bad. It would be bitter. I'd at least hold one spot.

    It would be a bad idea to not hold one spot for yourself. You may lose that money in the end if you get a school in NJ or NY but if you dont, it would be more expensive to reapply next year and uncertain too. The admissions process is very random!

    Yeah I know guys but I can't stay in Boston. My fiance is in NYC and we are getting married this summer. He works there and has a job there and it would be horrible to move. My whole family is in NY/Nj and that is where I want to be. Its a hard decision but I know I can't be in Boston... wish me luck

    It must be really hard for you to make that decision. But at least you have your priorities. i hope you get what you want, what you really want. And if things dont work out then there's always next year. Have you called up those schools you want to attend. If you let them know you're very serious about attending, it might help with their decisions.

    Thanks, yeah it is hard and scary but nothing means more to me than being with my fiance and so moving is a priority for me. I have my Columbia interview on Friday and my UMDNJ interview in January so hopefully those will go really well. I figure if I'm showing up for interviews now, late in the game, they have to know I'm serious about attending. I really have my heart set on UMDNJ so I guess I'll just have to sweat it out and wait. :scared:

    I'm trying to decide where to put my downpayment (Tufts or Stony Brook) while I wait to hear back from the other schools...

    I withdrew from NYU yeaterday.

    How did you withdraw? Did you call or e-mail? I received an acceptance letter and an info sheet on visiting the school - but no forms to fill out for either withdrawing or paying the deposit.. Thanks.

    Hey guys i wonder if we can have a withdraw thread like the official acceptance thread so that people would put in their names for the schools they withdrew from. How can we contact an official to ask them if they could do that for us?

    Any one have any suggestions on methods of withdraws that they have used or have been advised to use? I wonder if it differs from school to school. Is a phone call enough, or an email??
