So I got accepted to KSU:):) and rejected by UIUC:(:angry:, I'm still waiting on the other schools...the wait is excruciating

I understand the feeling. I'm still waiting on several schools to give me a decision. Two of which are my top choices. At this point I just want to know, regardless of what the decision is.

Well, accepted to the PhD program at WSU. Talk about a nail biter though. Unofficial notification on the 14th, official notification on the 17th, needed to make a decision by 5pm on the 19th.

Put me in quite the predicament as I had already accepted the offer from BSU since I wasn't expecting to hear back from WSU. I understand there are no legal ramifications of declining an offer after accepting it, but I really didn't feel that great about rescinding my acceptance and I really didn't like the idea of potentially burning bridges so early.

But as I understand it now, while this isn't a common occurrence, it does happen and while it might make some people upset, they probably won't hold a grudge.
