ddittmar Posted March 10, 2014 Share Posted March 10, 2014 (edited) Hello Everyone! So last Wednesday I received an acceptance letter to an MA program which was my second choice (Program B.) and another that was my third choice (Program C). Program B's letter asked for an acceptance decision within two weeks and was dated the week before so this Wednesday. I had wanted to visit both B and C, they are both in the same area, before committing and received an extension of decision from the department director as well as set up through email meetings with faculty. The night after confirming the extension and meeting plans with the professors I received an admittance email from my number one, super reach, top ten program. With more funding than the other programs. Needless to say, my mind is made up and I will be attending there this fall. My question is how to gracefully back out of the meetings with faculty members (this program is far away and would have cost me nearly a thousand dollars to visit) as I would hate to waste their/my time. All the meetings were set up through direct email contact and I'm feeling bad about canceling. Should I let them know that I got into another school with better funding? I'd hate to say it's a fit issue when they know I haven't visited yet. Thanks in advance! Edited March 10, 2014 by ddittmar Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
