I have been admitted to several schools of my choice. Each school's adcom has been very helpful throughout the application process. I understand that this is a very happy problem to have but I was wondering how should I go about turning down admission offers from schools of your second choice. Thanks.

I think it is wrong of you to steal godemol's original post to ask your own question. You could review this site a bit more and find the appropriate place to post your profile for review.

godemol - I think you should thank the adcom of each school via email telling them that you appreciate them taking the time to review your profile, however, due to personal reasons and goals you have decided to attend elsewhere.
