Did not sent written acceptance confirmation - am I screwed?

Postby eggy » Sat May 05, 2012 1:10 pm

Hey Guys,

I wanted to preface this by saying that I received an acceptance from my top choice school, and I really want to thank everyone for all their advice over the past year and a half.

I have a slight dilemma though.

I received a call from the admissions director with the offer, to which i expressed I wanted to accept. From that point I received an e-mail with the letter of the offer of admissions. I responded to the e-mail immediately, thanking the person in admissions for their assistance, and that I was really happy to receive the offer, but I did not use the words "I accept".

The admissions office responded saying they were very happy for me, and the next day, I received login information and information for making a seat deposit payment.

Here is the problem, I am reading the acceptance letter and it says I have to respond in writing to let them know I accept by May 4 (which has passed). I assumed since they already sent the login information after I responded to the initial e-mail, that what I said had been interpreted as my accepting the offer, but I'm worried because I did not explicitly state I was "accepting". I have just contacted them to confirm my initial response was acceptable, but in the chance that it is not, am I screwed?

Thx in advance for the advice.

Best of luck to everyone else this year!

Seat deposit is for June 1, and I already have that in the mail

Call them to double check. I can't imagine it being a problem. Even if they needed a written confirmation for their records, explain what happened and they shouldn't "let rules overrule common sense". (I've been on far too many Delta flights during the last couple of months.)

I tried to call but no one picked up because it's a saturday.

I'm pretty sure it should work out OK too, but I'm losing my mind anyway. I just thought that someone might have experience with this who might be able to clear things up.

Either way I'm gonna call first thing Monday morning. I figure not much can change from Friday night until then...

I seriously doubt this is a problem. They didn't give your seat away at 5 pm on Friday.
