In 2 weeks ago. Zilch regarding scholarships. I got a letter from OUTlaw and a phone call from a student, both of which I had hoped were scholly offers.

My updated trancript was not sent to BU.

In LSAC, it says, "Not sent at law school request" ... this probably means I am out already !!!

Sorry to bump...but just sharing my desire for some action! From BU, that is.

Please BU, make it rain with calls this week.

Travel stipend of $200 via email. The email stated that I am among a "select group" to receive such. Hopefully that doesn't mean a select group that didn't quite make the scholly cut, but who knows. Anybody else get this?

I emailed about the stipend after RSVP'ing for Preview Day. Apparently they only have a limited quantity of these $200 stipends and you have to email them ahead of time to get on the list in order to receive one (then bring your air/train/bus receipt to Preview Day and they'll mail you a check). Yay for visiting!

Good luck to those awaiting decisions!

Do they still have them or did they indicate they're out?

When I emailed she responded and said that I was on the list and I'd get one :) I'm sure they've still got them, but I'd email them ASAP! You have to be traveling >300mi (I think it is? It's on the ASW under the Preview Day stuff I think?) and they only reimburse for transportation expenses (air/train/etc.). Good luck!

Still waiting.

Although I found out I'm in at GW today so I'm not super anxious anymore. I'm a BU undergrad and the thought of three more Boston winters isn't exactly appealing right now...

Congrats! I'm curious, how long ago did you receive your acceptance packet (before the scholly letter)? Thanks!

Yes! Congrats!

I got the travel stipend email too, will definitely be going to an ASW, hopefully this bodes well for a scholly too.

Anyone know if BU can offer any lodging during ASW? I really want to go, but a ticket from here + a hotel would be more than I could afford.

I think they comp CERTAIN admits up to $200. Doesn't do shit if you're coming from the west....tickets are $300 round trip.
