+1
It seems like only the first few admits had scholarship info with the packet... I was really bummed that the packet didn't mention anything, so I stalked previous pages of the thread, where several people that were above both 75 percentiles reported not recieving any scholarship information.
... So I don't know if that means they're really stingy with scholarships or they'll be a second wave of them.

I definitely think more scholarship info will be coming out- looking at LSN, last year they gave out a lot- this year it's been primarily URMs so far.

I got my acceptance packet earlier this week and didn't receive any scholarship info either... I was going to try to negotiate some $$ but it seems like they may release merit scholarships later?? Do people think I should hold off for a bit before contacting BU?

I'm curious to this as well. I was a little bummed that there was nada in the packet, but after reading the posts from this weekend, I feel better!

If I'm not in at any of the top-ranked schools that I'm waiting on, which is highly likely, BU would undoubtedly be my #1 if some $ comes in...! (And even probably #1 without it)

Is it kosher to ask then if you're not getting any merit money? I would LOVE to attend bu, but if its totally at sticker, it would be financially impossible. Damn, that really sucks.

Dear Boston,

This wait is driving me crazy. My poor iPhone's battery cannot handle this constant TLS and e-mail checking. If it isn't going to work out between us, just let me know.

Love,
R

I was kind of wondering if it was okay to ask... could be awkward...?

Just ASK guys! It wont hurt you, and you've already been accepted. I don't see the harm. Just wait till you get your packet to be sure. LOL.

It looks like you have some decent offers, stlis. Are you really thinking of retaking the LSAT and trying again next cycle? Not that there's anything wrong with that, this is my second cycle, but a big part of that is that I got waitlisted everywhere last year and didn't know about a little something called a LOCI, lol.
