Could you guys give me some tips on how to write a decline letter to the school that accepted you? I just want to find a polite way to tell them but I really don't know how. Thanks

I agree with the above posters. I mean I'm sure you are a good candidate and all, but there are tons of others out there. Trust me, the school won't lose sleep over you no matter how stellar you are.

Something along the lines of it's me, not you. Try to let them down easy.

Hows this:

To: [insert dental school]

I just feel that we are growing apart. Maybe we weren't ment to be in the first place, but it sure has been a hell of a journey. I have to confess something though--I've found another school. We're just more compatible together, and we appreciate each other more. I know you'll turn out okay though, there's a lot of other candidates out there, and I'm sure you'll land on your feet and find the right one's for you. Thanks so much for understanding. No really, it means a lot. Well.....ummm....I guess I'll see ya around or somthing......Oh and try the Hot Pockets, they're breathtaking, they really are.

I would go and find someone who was rejected and make a copy of their rejection letter. Then turn it around to where you are the rejoctor not the rejectee and send that in.

Try this...

I am sorry, but due to the strong credentials at others schools, I am unable to offer my tuition and attendance for the class of 2011. I am clearly aware of your strong program and desire to train future dentists, and the fact that I am unable to accept your offer in no terms indicates the strength of your program. With over 20 dental schools to choose from, it was a decision not made incredibly easy. I wish you the best of luck in your pursuit of other well qualified students. And although I was your first choice, I am sure you will find an alternate that will bring to your school what Im bringing to another.

Sincerely,
f20cdentist
Class of 2011, Elsewhere
