    Have signed yet? If not just drop them a line saying thanks but no thanks. I did that for my SA and they were cool with it.

    Yeah, I just had to phone up and reject a couple. You feel bad, but they're always understanding. Just make sure to justify it properly.

    Just tried ringing them and no answer, deadline for responding to contract is by 28th.

    Yeah, it's the same.
    The contact isn't made until you accept it by signing and returning a signed copy to them.

    If the deadline to respond to accept the contact is the 28th, and you don't want to accept the contact, then if you fail to respond in time you haven't agreed/accepted anyway.

    If you want to leave them a message or email, you can do; but not responding to the contract in time will also nullify the contract.

    Obviously, but much better etiquette to get in contact yourself.

    Yes, exactly Christo that is why I wanted to contact them prior to the deadline to let them know my intentions.

    As I couldn't get through to the phone number I sent an email, and soon after I did I got a call from HR to ask why I had chosen the other IB over them!

    If you rejected a IB for summer would you then be blacklisted to apply for their grad position come Sept?
