Why would a top 10 school release their decisions AFTER most of the R2 deadlines? For example, Ross releases on Jan 15, a lot of R2 deadlines for other schools are before that - Jan 8, 10, 11.

If I am an applicant and I get a Ross admit, then I'm less likely to apply to other schools.

I wonder if one could call them up and state this to them. Basically say "Look if you know my decision, please tell me. Because if I am in, I won't even bother applying to X, Y , and Z"

Yeah, I won't but just wondering why a school would do that?
