Letter of intent withdrawal

Postby Confusedlaw1234 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 11:14 pm

I sent in my letter of intent to UT law school, but I recently decided it’s not the school for me. Can I get out of the letter of intent or is it binding? What are my options?

What did you write? Did you write that you will attend in response to an offer such that they may rely on your promise?

Did you write a letter of continued interest having not heard back from the school?

Did the school ask you to write the letter?

It seems unlikely that, absent an early decision application, that you'd be bound to the school in any way, but you really don't provide enough information.

It is highly likely that the letter is not binding. Even when schools waive the seat deposit with a seat deposit waiver form, in exchange for the student withdrawing from all other schools, the option remains to simply not attend any school that cycle.

If you no longer want to attend UT, send a letter formally withdrawing your application.
