We received an e-mail today saying that $$ would be offered, starting in Mar, on a rolling basis

Obviously, exceptional applicants have received large sums at this point already

Yeah, this scholarship thing is killing me. I'd really rather not go tour the school until they let me know what they can offer me. At this point, I'm not interested without any money.

+1... above both 75s for BC and BU, applied waaaay back in the day. Held at BC pending transcript update (did that last week, GPA did not change), and have been complete/heard nothing from BU since October. Lesigh.

Received an offer of admission in the mail! I submitted my application in late November, but hadn't heard anything from the school since that time. Congratulations to fellow admits and good luck to those waiting to hear.

My status checker says "DR" as of tomorrow (2/21). I'm not sure when it changed, but based on the pattern I've seen, if I don't get an email tomorrow, it's a waitlist or a ding, correct?

Unless they do it differently for different people, you should be receiving an email with a link to a short video clip, which shows the assistant dean congratulating the applicant. Who knows, maybe they only send out that video to some people, I got one because I'm currently working overseas, and the admission package will take two weeks to get here. Just wait it out. Good luck!

I am an undergrad at BC and the school is open. I had the same thing happen to me, i got a DR the day before the actual date. If you are in you should get an e mail tomorrow afternoon as people here have said. Good luck!

Is it too early to try to negotiate scholarship money from BC since it doesn't really seem like they have started giving it out that many offers yet?

What would you be negotiating? I havent been accepted yet, but it seems like they haven't given out a lot of scholarship info/$$.

Disregard this if they already gave you your finaid info.

Any mid-late Janurary completes/under reviews hear anything yet? I assume the answer is no, as people who went complete in the fall are still awaiting their results, but perhaps I am wrong about that

In Review 1/21 here. Still, I wouldn't expect anything this month -- they seem to stick pretty close to that 8-12 week review period, FWIW.

With admitted students starting to come to campus and admitted students' day approaching, I started a board to field any questions you might have.

I'm a law student and the law school is closed for students today-- admission staff may be in though.
