Any further extension could lead us to an unfortunate situation where you might turn down the offer, but by then all other top candidates on our short list might have already accepted other offers. April 4th is really the best we can do, and we hope that is enough time. If it is not, then it is best you turn down our offer now, and you can focus on the other potential opportunities you may have.

I hope it wouldn’t be too much to ask for, but if until April 11th is too late, I was really hoping you could give me until April 8th. I will still try to expedite the other offer’s processes as much as I can and try to have a response ASAP. Again, I’m terribly sorry for the inconvenience.
