OK, here's the situation: Schools A and B extend offers last month. School C puts the student on its waitlist. The student "accepts" the offers knowing that one will have to be withdrawn on or before May 15. He also sends a letter of continued interest to School C. So far so good. Today School A "rescinds" its offer. It doesn't matter why, it just does so. My questions are as follows: Is School B automatically notified of the rescission of the School A offer? If so, does it learn the reason for the rescission? Does School C, the waitist school, ever learn of the rescission. In other words, does the action of one school in rescinding its offer effect the student's chances at other schools? As you probably have guessed, this is not simply a hypothetical. Any knowledege of how this works would be greatly appreciated (and is urgently needed). Thanks.
