So, I've really liked AECOM since I was 18. I like what they do, the way they do it, their involvment in the community and global health issues, and more... But, I withdrew, because I had better acceptances and other issues. BUT, I've gotten a personal note (a standard letter with handwritten note below) from both my interviewer (Dean of Education Affairs), and one just yesterday from Dean Kerrigan (we talked for an hour my interview day) where she literally says that she regrets my withdrawal and had looked forward to my being there.

AND, I CRIED! I felt so bad I cried! I felt like writing an apology email. What do you do in that case? I feel so bad. I think I'm getting too neurotic. It is totally depressing me. I told my dad (I'm not in the country at the moment) not to read the rest to me b/c I couldn't take it. AH! I'm such a baby. Okay, that's my annoying message about my AECOM withdrawal...

I think that's in poor taste for them to write you that note. You've already withdrawn, what are you going to do, un-withdraw? There's no sense in giving you a guilt trip about it.

I think this thread was doomed from the moment the OP titled it "annoying thread". I agree it was probably a little unnecesary for them to write a personal note like that but in the end it is just another school, nothing to get too down about.

This is far and away the most shameless, pathetic thing I have ever heard of. What does AECOM stand for (sorry, not up on my med school acronyms)? And why is their school so pathetic that they don't have 50+ applicants standing in line for your now-vacated spot?

I agree, it is difficult. They do have people lined up, I assure you. But losing a quality candidate is tough.
