Hello everyone! This is my first post, though I've been browsing the Pre-Dental forums for a few weeks now (SDN messed up my e-mail for some reason, and it took forever to activate it.) Anyway, I wanted to start a new thread that looks beyond everyone's anxiety and poses some more optimistic questions about what to do AFTER we're all accepted on December 1! I know it's hard to imagine the universe continuing after that infamous Thursday, but suddenly we'll have some important decisions to make! 1. What is the best way to decline a school's acceptance once you've chosen another? Which format (E-mail, letter, phone), and what's the best wording? 2. What is the best way to react if you are accepted on the phone? Is it best to be cool and professional? If it's your first choice, do you let the Dean hear you have a fit? Is enthusiasm good? Ideas? It's great to know that so many other people are going through what I am!! Please, though, from a newbie's perspective: stop taking everything so damn seriously! Use this for helpful information; creating drama upon drama is such a waste of energy.
