How do you politely

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by BlackPuma, Oct 23, 2001.

  1. tell a school that you no longer want to take their interview offer...I don't want to sound pompous...but I have a difficulty saying.....

    "Sorry lost interest, found a better place"

    especially if the person on the other end, is extremely nice :(

    I FEEL so bad even thinking about it....

    Send an email and then a signed letter to the admissions office stating something to the effect of, "At this point in time it is necessary for me to withdraw my application for admission..." Just be very professional about it. I remember actually feeling bad about writing some of these letters, but the sooner you do it, the sooner you will be helping out another fellow applicant, as well as making things easier on the office staff.

    If you do it right away, maybe someone can take that interview spot. If you're sure, why wait?
