    What's the procedure for withdrawing apps. Do you just write them a letter or send an e-mail? Does it look bad that you just wait until the cycle time is over and you don't tell them anything before that.

    i don't think it matters whether email/letter makes it bad...but just withdraw! I'm sure there are many people who would appreciate it.

    i, myself, don't know how the procedure works, but i'm just going to email the schools and tell them i want to cancel the scheduled interviewed dates...and for other schools...to withdraw the application. B/c emails are A LOT easier than letters!

    :D ...oh, i didn't read carefully...i doubt it'd look bad...cuz you would not really care what they think now rite? but it'd be MORE CONSIDERATE to open up chances for others.

    Please inform them in writing (fax, email, letter, it doesn't really matter). Please, do that ASAP to give others a chance.
