Yes, good news is you haven't been dinged/WLed yet. I called and basically got the same response.

Please call me, BU!

They haven't even looked at your app yet - meaning they could LOVE IT and accept you soon after you go UR. No need to feel :-/ yet!

Theory: Maybe they look at applicants above their 75ths first and then move on to applicants that are around their medians. I know I'm right around the middle. I'm hoping that my softs push me in.

I would TOTALLY learn to love them if I got accepted. :lol:

Also "complete and ready for review" doesn't mean you're not being reviewed already. I feel like after that status, the next one is "decision made." Or so it seems.

Oh please don't become another one of the pink-hat poser "fans" who likes the team by default.

I'm below their median lsat and above their median gpa and I was accepted during one of the January waves - applied 1/11, so I think there really isn't a method to their madness.

good luck to those still waiting!

does anyone have any idea the amount of the public interest scholarship? I'm leaning very strongly towards BU these days and that scholly could solidify my decision.

I didn't mean that the reply I got was bad, I just had a small hope in the back of my mind that something different would happen :wink:

haha. dont worry. I'll still love my hometown team but I love baseball so i try to make it a point to at least somewhat like the team located in the city I am living near to make the games a tad bit more enjoyable. It's nice to have some emotional investment in games. Good thing boston is in a different league.

How would they only look at people above the 75ths and then move to the medians if aren't able to calculate those numbers yet from the 2011 admitted class!? :? :shock: My head hurts...

I am one of those people. Sent my app mid November and I'm above both 75th percentiles. Really getting frustrated with them!

Okay, I'm done trying to find logic in their process lol. I submitted my application on October 30th and went complete on November 23rd, so I'm not sure what is taking so long! I'm assuming that this means they've decided that I'm neither an automatic yes nor an automatic no. I guess I'll have to continue to wait impatiently. :-)
