Thanks! I have already decided on Chicago so I just sent them another email thanking them for the acceptance but telling them I withdrew yesterday morning. Hopefully that opens up a spot for someone on here still waiting!

Sorry to hear :(. It must be nice to get your mail in the morning, though. My mailman usually arrives around 5 PM.

thanks, it was actually placed under my door by neighbors i assume cause the mailman put it in the wrong mailbox yesterday, i was right in my suspicions that it was lost in the mail. it was dated 4/20 though.
