    I would just send polite, succinct notes thanking them for their kindness and time in reaching out, but you’ve decided to accept an offer at another school.

    There’s no reason to feel bad. No one will take it personally. They’ll be happy for you in finding the perfect place to land..

    @buuzn03 , send an email to all the schools (Admissions Office) that you will not be attending! Be gracious and thank them for their time on your application.

    They will understand and it is expected, now they can offer a spot to another student waitlisted. Good Luck!

    Kiddo went over to the college decision thread and watched YouTube videos on rejections - then did not feel so bad rejecting schools.`🙄
    Believe me - you/your kiddo is more invested in them, than they are in you. Don’t feel guilty!
