Programs REU Deadlines

  1. Mar 5, 2017 #1
    I recently got accepted to an REU, although not my first choice. The deadline to accept is March 17th. I emailed my first choice asking if they could get back to me before the 15th.

    This is probably me being paranoid, but say I accept on the 16th. But because I waited a while, they offered someone else a spot and they took it. Is this scenario even remotely likely?

    Very unlikely. Most places are pretty good about holding to deadlines.

    If they gave til March 17, you got til March 17. Don't sweat it.
