    I applied to Southampton and they sent me a letter inviting me to an interview an visit day, which I would be really happy about, but I already have all my other offers and have no intention of going to soton, so don't really want to spend loads of money and time trekking down there for an interview unnecessarily!

    On the interview invite letter there's a form in which I have to state why I will not be attending, any suggestions as to what I would put here? Or would you think it would be easier to withdraw the application? Thanks for any suggestions!

    Just be old-fashioned and tell them the true situation. Is that so difficult?

    Well, you could do either. Withdrawing from them would mean that you can reply to your offers instantly. Under reason you could leave it blank, or write "I do not wish to attend this university" or something like that

    Thanks to both suggestions, think I'll go with writing I don't wish to attend, just couldn't think of the right words to put it in!
