    I interviewed for two internships this week, one Tuesday and one Wednesday. They were both positions I was interested in, although I was slightly most interested in the one I viewed yesterday (as it's two days per week, which was more what I was looking for than the other one which was 4 days per week).

    I got a response today, as she said I would get, that I was accepted as an intern. But the other gallery will not give their response until tomorrow.

    In a situation like this, what do you do? I do feel like I need to respond but I want to see if I get the other one, but how to communicate this without it sounding like "you're my back up"?

    If you're hearing back from the other place tomorrow I don't see the problem. You don't need to reply to the first place immediately and I'm sure they would rather you thought your answer through, especially if it's only one day!

    I got an email from the second gallery today. She said it was a pleasure meeting me and asks if I can come and talk to her again Tuesday morning. It is a bit annoying, because I can't wait too long before giving a reply to the first gallery. Should I tell her the situation and ask if it can be done sooner, like Monday?
