:shock: :shock: I thought those numbers= in!!!

Shocked I haven't been WL'ed yet, considering my 164...

I'm sorry, mag!!

Do you guys all have the same time stamp? Or are they not done with WLs yet?

If it makes you guys feel any better (or at least less confused), they did say they're aiming for a class size of 230, which is a pretty decent cut from 265 I think they had last year. So more waitlisting would be expected as they want to ensure they meet their goal and don't over-enroll.

for those who are WL'ed... I got in just recently, with 163 and 3.76 BC undergrad with strong softs... if you are interested in BU, I say make it known

I am kinda shocked with people getting WL'ed

For what it's worth they started sending out Public Interest Scholars decisions. . .

Looks like I survived this round of waitlists. Or perhaps I am going to get the delayed snail mail rejection. Sorry for all of you guys, and it's not a good sign for me when people with numbers as good as yours are getting the WL treatment.

Once again someone that got into at least 2 of the three schools I would be elated to get into. Seem to be the ones you are choosing between too. Perhaps you could make that decision and free up some wiggle room for us outliers still waiting on word???

Not sure if above post was to me, but I currently attend BU. Though I do agree with the sentiment, don't clog the WL

Now I'm starting to get worried... I would think my numbers would make me an auto-admit but I've been waiting since December. I even sent in a LOCI to show them I'm serious (I live in Boston and would like to stay here). Oh well, I've done about all I can do!

I know BU can be unpredictable, and things aren't always completely fluid, but considering that practically everyone waitlisted earlier today had better stats than me (3.33/167), I feel like I'm a goner. Not too surprising considering BU is a reach to begin with (LSP has me at "Deny")...maybe a miracle will happen and I will have a shot...we'll see
