    I just got pulled off a waitlist, and I need to drop a spot at a different school. What is the preferred method for this (letter, phone call, email)?

    I think a letter is preferred, but I just used email because I wanted to save the couple bucks letters would've costed. I'd so much rather get a beer with that money! No school complained about my using email.

    Depends on the time of year you do it. Call now. Times are close. You may be dropped by the school you actually want if you don't act quickly!

    use the phone b/c it's the fastest, so you can make another waitlister extremely happy ASAP. :)

    I wrote a letter, faxed it to the office, and mailed a hard copy just to be sure.

    I sent an email and a letter. :) It's best to let them know ASAP so no one drops you for holding multiple acceptances, and also for people waiting for your spot! :)
