I think the turn around has generally been fast (same day) but for some its been a day to two days. Unfortunately there seems to be no clear cut rule. Good luck!

Thanks! And thanks for that update - seeing as if it is 4:30 p.m. and there is no email, I am expecting the worse, but your post gives me (some) hope...we'll see what happens!

I suppose though that the turn-around in that case could be considered a few hours, since admissions offices are closed after business hours, right? That would tell me that the turn-around would be really brief in your case


Same case...I had my DR about 5PM...got the e mail at 1 PM the next day...Good Luck

Has anyone received any updates regarding financial aid? That's all I'm waiting on to end my cycle!

Heard from both BU and BC today via email within about 20 minutes of each other, conspiracy!
W/L at BU, in at BC. 3.3/173, late apps, in early Jan.

It seems likely that we will have to log-in to Agora to see our $$ info for the first time

With that in mind, does anyone know how to log-in, or else when we'll receive log-in info?

Last year they had sent out the Agora info by mid-March is what it looks like from past forums (pretty sure they posted scholarship info on March 18th)

I emailed the office to inquire about merit-based aid implying that I had other large offers/asking if they'd consider my other offers and they replied with a scholly email! $54k! ($18k/yr)

congrat krad! I am jealous...i emailed them about merit aid and they told me to send along whatever info I thought they should consider, so I just did yesterday. Hoping that I hear something positive back from them as well!

Does that mean that unless we email them, we will not receive offers at this point? I am shocked I haven't received anything yet...should I email?

Good luck :)

@ whitman I'm not really sure what their standard process/time line is; that was one of the questions in my email (and it wasn't really answered ha)... I'm sure you'd get something?

It's been over 24 hours (between 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Monday, now it is 12:30 p.m. Tuesday) since getting the "Decision Rendered" status change - and no email. I assume that means I am a waitlist or rejection, hoping for the former, obviously. Anyone have a longer lay-over and still get an acceptance email?

To everyone who emailed BC about merit aid.. Who did you send your emails to? Also, did you just mention the dollar amounts of other schools' offers?

also is it really beneficial to email them offers or perhaps just to wait and see when they release this big scholarship wave...what did it look like last year?
