You know, LSN should have a little "you are here" star (or snowflake!) whenever you view a graph.



3.45 and in!

Bracing myself for a small envelope today or tomorrow.
Congratulations to everybody else!

Me too. This is frustrating since I've already heard from several higher ranked schools. Super sad that I didn't get any BC love today. :(

I'm still sitting at review status for pretty much every school I applied to. The curse of the bad LSAT I guess.

I feel you henchman. Decision rendered 12/06 but no fancy email from the dean all day. I even called BC and all they said was that my decision would come through snail mail. fml....here's to hoping that a batch of 'welcome' emails are sent out tomorrow morning. I'm honestly hoping that they went in alphabetical order and just didnt get to my last name yet. :mrgreen:

Hate to do this to you but my last name is right at the beginning of the alphabet. :( If I had to guess, I think our decision is "hold", I saw one today on LSN. Regardless, our letters should be arriving soon.

The two schools were in a dead heat for placement the last year for which there is data, 2009. If you'd rather end up in NYC then BU probably has a slight edge, but otherwise the main factor in choosing between the two schools is gonna be which is, subjectively, a better fit for you.

Not posting class of '09 data because I think the numbers will still be at that level (they'll be down across the board since then for class of '10 at least, and probably for the foreseeable future), but rather to show the relatively equality in placement between the two schools.

Did anyone's status checker change to "Your Application is being reviewed"

I feel like before it just said "complete" and the small message described the application being reviewed.

Maybe I'm dreaming...

Did you receive your welcome email today? What is your status date for decision rendered?

To those of you who are hearing decisions- did you select the EA option or are people who applied regularly also hearing?

Is it rude to ask them why I should choose them over BU? It seems like the most obvious question possible, but I don't want to offend.

And vice versa, of course.

Thanks for the response. Anyone have any information on when scholarship information is sent?

By welcome email do you mean the video message from the Dean? Also, has anyone with the congrats/video email yesterdays gotten their packages in the mail yet?
