did you e-mail them asking if they would match? or did they ask you what other offers you had? just curious how this went about, if you don't mind saying...

Hey guys,

I applied to BU at the end of November and haven't heard anything since (besides the complete e-mail)--is this normal? My numbers are competitive for BU (168, 4.0) and I was hoping that I might be a candidate for some scholarship money. Am I out of luck?

Thanks for your thoughts! Good luck to everyone!

Who knows what they're up to. This cycle has been weird for everyone. Honestly, holding people above medians for a long time is not unheard of. If you get in now, this late in the cycle, ask right away for $$. I think that's the best you can do. Great numbers by the way, I'm sure you'll have some enviable choices at the end of your cycle.

I have pretty much identical numbers to you and have not heard anything since submitting late november also. I looked on lsn and last year they waitlisted a few people with numbers like ours and a little higher probably yp I would think.

Complete and Ready for Review email on 1/25...is the general consensus that I'm probably not going to hear a decision for a while?

BU get back to me please. You are the only school other than Cornell that hasn't gotten back to me. That's bad company to be in with.

Agreed. 3 months is ridiculous.

In via voicemail 10 minutes ago! Of all the times to call, they picked the 15 minutes I was donating blood and couldn't move to reach my phone... But yay! Now I'm extra lightheaded!

169/3.68, complete 1/5.

Congrats!

I'm 168/3.87 and have been complete since 12/14 without any word. You seem to have breezed through the process a lot faster than others.

I just missed a phone call about 15 minutes ago, and my voicemail isn't working!
Did the call come from a Boston phone number, or was it anonymous?

Boston!

And I just inquired about my application status yesterday, got an email today saying it was complete but not under review... Hopefully it's not a mistake.

When BU called my iphone late last month, the number came across as 'Unknown' so I didn't answer...! When they left a VM it showed up as the 617-353-2000 number, which is what I think shows up for everyone IIRC.

Aargh! Now my phone has stopped working altogether!!
How long was it between the phone call and the acceptance email (assuming that's standard procedure)?
