Dear [Name of Program],

It is with the utmost pleasure and excitement to inform you that I have accepted your offer of admission to the [program name] program. After visiting your program, I truly knew that none of the [field of study] programs I was accepted to could offer me the critical thinking that the [name of graduate school] would. Quite simply I could not envision myself anywhere else.

I was extremely impressed by the quality of faculty and graduate student research projects and of the research facilities. I thoroughly enjoyed my recruitment meetings with Drs. [name of individuals whom you have met with or corresponding with]. I can honestly see myself working with the entire [name of program] faculty and it will be a difficult decision to choose only three rotations. Again, I look forward to becoming an active student and researching with the [name of program] faculty and students. Thank you so much.
