I don't know what took them 11 weeks to waitlist me...You'd think that they could have let me know a while ago. Weird.



Since 10/1, so, umm...forever! Or, so it felt...

Thanks, Gemini. Yup, it's hard to remember life before TLS, haha. It sucks to have not been accepted right away, but it's almost not as bad as the anxiety of waiting. Well, I guess I'm still technically waiting, since I'm on the WL, but it's almost nice to know they didn't lose my application...

The Admissions Office just told me there's a status checker on their website. Does anyone know where it is? A quick search turned up nothing...

Nevermind, just found it:

its not an autochecker you can stalk everyday
its a request for an email update about your file.
Some people haven't even gotten responses from it, others got responses within hours of "complete" or "in review"
Too lazy to give the link...

There's a form to fill out to ask for a status update, but it seems pretty much everybody just gets a generic response saying you're under review and they're working on it and thank you for being patient. I'm sure someone can provide the link (I can't find it currently...)

...and now BU gets a flood of status requests. :lol:

Thanks for the link, though. I went complete 12/08, so I definitely fall out of the six week range.

so were there really no acceptances this week since Monday? Maybe that means they'll make it rain phone calls next week!

Got my status email just now:

BU wrote:Your application was completed on December 8, 2010 and is now ready for review....


It was nice of them, I definitely won't be requesting an update anytime soon, though. Looks like they haven't even started reviewing my application, yet. :(

FWIW the only status update I ever got from BU was that it was "complete and ready for review" and then the phone call came out of the blue on Monday morning.

I got my admissions packet today, but no word on scholarship. When I asked on Monday, she told me they do scholarship aid in two waves and the merit based aid, I assumed, would be in the admissions packet and need based aid would come later. I hope I was wrong?

Still patiently waiting- went complete in late December. Status check said complete and under review. Hoping to hear this week... actually hoping to hear lastweek since I'm in CT now. Oh well... I'm hoping its a positive sign that I didnt get an email this week.

How are scholarships coming? Anyone get anything good yet?

Just got the admissions packet. No mention of scholarships. Le sigh.
