    Depends, how did they offer it?

    Just do it quickly - email with letter to follow, so your seat can go to another.

    I wrote a letter to one and the other actually had a check box "yes" or "no", which was nice. Flighterdoc is right, email and send a letter. Besides, you may end up in a graduate program at one of those schools.:)

    The best way? Promptly. Someone will be thankful to you.

    Edit: Oops. Just noticed that fighterdoc said the same thing.

    Thanks for your help guys. I e-mailed and got a reply shortly after. It was very nice, told me good luck in my dental future. I think i will follow up that nice e-mail with a big turd in a box to show my appreciation.
