123456789 Posted February 16, 2008 Share Posted February 16, 2008 I accepted one school's invitation to interview several weeks ago, and the department bought my tickets, etc. It is next weekend, Feb 21-23. Then in the middle of last week, a school I am much more interested in contacted me about their interview/open house visit on the same weekend. Just over 1 week notice seems pretty bizarre, and I'm assuming somebody else must have backed out on them, but that's another matter. Anyway, I am considering canceling on the first school and scrambling to arrange the visit to the second, and I'm just wondering what other people think of the general dickness of the move? I suspect the first school can recoup some of their money for the plane tickets, and avoid paying for the hotel and all that. I am fairly convinced at this point that I won't be attending this school, so I'm not sure if it's worse to cancel or to accept their hospitality knowing I'll be elsewhere in the fall. Furthermore, I already told the other school that I had a conflicting visit, and if I suddenly tell them I can go after all, are they going to assume I'm the kind of asshole who backs out of a commitment at someone else's expense? Ugh. Somehow I thought the nail-biting would ended when these decisions started rolling in. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
