    this is probably a dumb question but do our letters of withdrawal have to reach the med schools by may 15th or can it just be post-marked by then or could we just e-mail them on may 14th and follow up with a letter. thanks.

    btw, congrats to those that made it and good luck to those still waiting.

    I think it's best to send an email withdrawal. At least then, it will get there instantly and when they receive it they will respond so you know they received it.

    Why wait? If you've already decided, just send it now.

    I would email and then send a snail mail, so you can't get into trouble with the one you choose to keep.

    The deadline is fast approaching..................

    That's a great idea. You could also fax.

    I called one school, told them that I was declining, and then followed up with an e-mail. In most cases, you may not have to waste a stamp. Just check with the school first, and they'll probably make a note on your record and then ask you to send something in writing (e-mail or snail-mail).

    Best of luck with your decision.

    It depends on the school. Call them to ask what they prefer because each school does it differently.
