Best way to deny acceptance offer?
« on: May 12, 2008, 01:43:52 PM »
I know this is probably a no brainer, but can you just email the schools and tell them you've picked another and thanks for the offer? Or do you need to officially send them something?

only if you've gotten into a better school and they gave you more money, in which case you send a copy of the acceptance letter and scholarship offer. j/k.

no, if you don't pay your seat deposit or return a form stating that you're attending, the school will assume that you aren't coming.

at one school I did put down a seat deposit, which is refundable up until TODAY... so I was hoping email would work to get that back :)

aren't most seat deposits non-refundable?

mine was fully refundable for 2 weeks, then they take like $50 for every 2 weeks that goes by... then the last $300 is not refundable at all. something like that.  so today is when my 2nd $50 is going to be deducted unless I withdraw.

If today is the deadline, you should call them.  Don't delay and lose out on 50 bucks.

And you should withdraw anyway; give some hopeful kid on the waitlist something to smile about.
