Here are some of the questions we have received most frequently regarding the process of accepting and declining offers:
  1. Should I Accept My Round 1 Offer?
    It is recommended that you accept a Round 1 offer in case you do not receive a waitlist offer or you are not interested in the programs available in Round 2.

  2. What about Waitlists & Round 2?
    You do not need to decline a Round 1 offer to remain on any waitlists or submit an application in Round 2, but if you accepted a Round 1 offer, you should only submit a Round 2 application for programs that you prefer to the offer you accepted.

  3. When are Offers Automatically Declined?
    Receiving a Round 2 offer will automatically forfeit any Round 1 offer you may have accepted. However, if you receive a waitlist offer, you will then choose between that offer and the offer you already accepted.
