Probably a dumb question, but who do you call to accept the offer? The person who called you with the offer? The hiring partner who put his phone number on the offer letter for "questions"? The recruiting coordinator?

Depends. I was given a letter to sign and send back to accept. I did that and emailed the hiring partner, with whom I interviewed, to let him know that I mailed in my accpetance and was looking forward to the upcoming summer.

I called the partner who called me... mainly because when we talked I told him that barring something catastrophic I discovered about the firm I'd be calling him Monday to accept, so that's what I did.

Same as above. I called the hiring partner (who called me with the offer) and accepted by phone. Nice to have the immediate confirmation (and "hooray!"). :)
