Nervously declined

First I want to say I am not complaining.. I got into two schools and I know I am very lucky and happy to be able to choose. One school is closer and it starts sooner, and so it was my first choice, but I have held off declining the second school. I know there are people waiting for my slot but I felt nervous about cutting off one of my options. It has been 11 days since I received the letter, and I am hitting myself over the head because I could have faxed them back right away but I always found excuses. (I work full-time, go to school at night, and I had a midterm, then finals etc....) They finally called me to find out what I want to do and I told them today that I am declining, but I feel really terrible that they had to hunt me down and I don't know why I am so nervous having now done it. I know some of you are waiting to get letters of acceptance and so I apologize for being so lame. I guess I have been waiting so long to find out if I had been accepted that I wanted to kind of soak it in and make sure it was really happening.. Does that make sense?

2 is always better than one!!!! more options more chances....I will do the same thing. Do not feel bad about it you're already in and that's what counts. Forget the past and focus on your future and dreams.....They are just around the corner...

Good luck!!!! :lol2:

i understand. i'm not in that situation (applied to one school and haven't heard back) but i would probably have done the same thing. i might have even said that i still didn't know when they called! i don't know about you but i'm a giant worrier. i would worry that something crazy might happen then couldn't go to the first choice school or something. all madness of course!

congrats on getting in and on making a hard decision!

JB, I did that for awhile too--sat on 2 acceptance letters to think it over. Because what if I chose one school and then, say, a meteor landed on it? :lol2: And I had no option b?

Congrats on getting in and having choices!

I loved your meteor worries. I am the same way about a lot of things. I leave all my options open and keep thinking, "What if...?" I need options B, C, D .... You never know what might happen.

Hey, that gives me some hope knowing people do this. When it comes time for me to apply I will keep in mind that I can get a spot if someone turns down a spot. :)

Our school gave us 3 days to mail back an acceptance or decline letter. Probably because there were 4oo candidates for 25 slots. I wrote an acceptance as soon as I got my letter. I can live with my choice.
