Also false. Companies rescind offers, suddenly lay people off, etc., all the time. There is no concept of loyalty in business, and you should not be tricked into thinking there is.

Especially for internships. It's sometimes a long while between offer and start date, so many things can happen on either side of the fence to change the situation.

we have 5 summer interns coming our way in 2017. If one backed out, I might not even notice. To be honest, we interviewed them in sept, so I only remember 3 of them.
