    I was hoping I could get feedback on what to put in a letter to accept an appointment to a med school. The letter says I have to confirm in writing by 12/21, easy enough until you go to write the letter!

    Who do I address it to? It's no longer the ad com, right? then who?

    Does this sound stupid? What would you put? Anyone had to do this for other schools? Thanks!

    "It is an honor to accept my appointment to xx Medical School for the 2006 entering class. I have included my deposit of $100 along with this letter and will be withdrawing my applications from all other schools. I look forward to beginning my medical education at xx this summer!"

    Thanks in advance!

    oh cry me a river... surely this information is in the acceptance letter, surely you can call the admissions department at the school, or find the e-mail address of the person who signed your letter...

    with that said, congrats! mayo is a dream for so many people!

    :thumbdown: to the haters.

    The acceptance letter I got from my school was also very ambiguous about how to do it. My guess would be that you would send it to Dr. Barrier, but to be on the safe side, I'd probably call Jane on Monday to check where exactly to send it.

    Congrats again!

    ps - I really meant what I said tongue-in-cheek, I'm actually ecstatic for you... Mayo is amazing, it has more MRI machines in all of Canada! oh well, maybe a rotation will be possible there one day.

    Thanks for your help! I'll call Monday to make sure I should send it to Dr. Barrier. yes, I could do it myself but I'm still in shock and don't want to say/do something stupid! I just thought I could get some feedback and some people on here may know. It's not like there's not more pointless threads than this. Have a good night!
