Knew a guy from my previous school who transferred there last year. I'm pretty sure he was accepted and moved out there less than two weeks before classes started . . .

I went complete at BU on 7/13 and was accepted on 7/15. I withdrew because I got into someplace better. My stats were top 15% T40. Hope this helps and good luck!

Thanks for the responses. I'm already in at GW, rejected at BC, Fordham (not sure what happened there), and waiting on BU so I'm in reasonable shape from my point of view. Thus far not getting into the other schools has been painless given the GW acceptance. An acceptance from BU would throw a spanner in the works as I'd be "forced" to make the decision between similar schools. I honestly have no clue what the hell I would do should that happen. It would likely be decided after a bottle or two of wine, when I make all of my finest decisions...

Coming from a T50 with ranking of 20%....yes, I consider myself pretty fortunate for the GW acceptance. Good softs, good LORs, history/family in Boston, etc, but I think getting into BU is just as much of a reach as the others. Here's to a little luck and a difficult decision.
