Congratulations for those with acceptances!:clap:

I was wondering if it is safe to cancel post-Dec interviews if I got into other schools I like more.
It's actually this Friday, and I am concerned if it would affect my acceptance to other schools...
It sounds unlikely, but just wanted to ask and be safe!
Also, should I mention the reason for cancelling or should I just be like "I won't be able to make it"?
The schools will probably know why already though..

Of course it'd be fine to. If you're not going, no point in interviewing.
Cancelling frees the school up to interview people that would potentially go there. Also helps people trying to get in by freeing up an interview slot.

cancel it. If anything, its more unprofessional to just waste their time if you aren't interested.

Im attending anyways, partly because I already spend 700 bucks on airfare and it's Vegas.

I purposely set up a few of my interviews post Dec 1st when I was interviewing. I did this to save the airfare if I was accepted somewhere. Not harm cancelling it IMO.

LOL, so did I. I'm still contemplating if I should cancel the interview and just go relax in Vegas instead....
