    you have to withdraw. it's stated in the contract. you risk raising red flags if you don't.

    Weee, thank god i withdrew all my apps, didnt want this sort of problem occuring. man wouldnt that suck to be released from a school due to a broken contract for a trivial thing such as withdrawing OTHER applications. Im watching many of my friends use this loophole though, and are applying RD to schools even after they were accepted ED, just to see if they could get in/compete with other friends like its a game. Its sad, since many schools that are applying to the same schools as their dream or reach school are going to suffer..again , thanks for the advice guys.

    good luck to you. and congrats.
    just remember you're far better off than the poor lad who got two ED acceptances.

    Why dont you drop an anonymous note in your guidance counselors mailbox---that would certainly put the pressure on these kids to withdraw their applications. It is very difficult for kids this year to get into any of the schools they want. The behavior of some of these kids is disgusting.

    It is worth it to let the GC know about students' not withdrawing their apps. If those students end up backing out of their ED decisions, that could hurt other students at your school. That's what happened at S's school when a student got accepted ED, didn't tell her GC, and then accepted RD at another university. The ED school called the GC and blamed the GC, and the next year, a girl who really wanted to go to that ED school and had the stats for it was rejected.

    nope ... online friends..

    it's soo crazzy how competitive kids who post at CC are tho, stats are off the charts and they are grabbing schools by applying to 10-15 some 20 schools..................

    khant1m , i dont see why you think there is a link between off the wall stats and applying to tons of places... i think its the opposite the better ur stats the less places you apply cause ur chances are better ... also people apply to more and more places no cause its fun ( after all it costs close to $100 per app) but cause its so competitive nowadays.... for example i have so so stats sat in the 1300 range so i applied to about 15 places so i am pretty sure ill end up in some place next year... another reason is that now with online app and the common app its much easier to do multiple apps so why not...
