hello,

I recently got an interview invitation at Temple and I decided not to attend the interview because I have already been accepted at 2 other schools and I am completely broke. The email gave me a window of time to schedule my interview by on the internet and I didn't respond due to a crazy exam schedule. I then got an email making sure that I had received the first and advising me to schedule by last Friday, which I just received today due to spring break. the email said taht if I hadn't scheduled by friday they would withdraw me, but my question is this ...Should I just call and withdraw? Does it look bad that I didn't formally withdraw? How do you formally withdraw?

Thanks everyone. I just don't want to look like dingus at this school.

i'm in the same boat. my feeling is that it probably doesn't matter but it wouldn't hurt to send them an email declining the interview. that said, i still haven't taken my own advice yet.

edit:
just finally sent them an email thanking them for considering me but politely saying that i got into a medical school of my choice.

To what email address did you send this letter?

I canceled my Temple interview also. I just e-mailed them at [email protected] saying:

My name is Ambs, AMCAS ID # 111111. Thank you for considering my application for an interview; however, I wish to withdraw my application from further consideration at the Temple University School of Medicine.

Thank you kindly,

Ambs

Nicole, where in ND are you from? I am from Bismarck, and it is great to see someone else representing the "motherland!"
