Been complete since 12/9... It's been over 13 weeks and still nothing. A couple of weeks ago I requested a status update and heard back that my file was complete and ready for review. I really love the school, so all of this waiting is excruciatingly painful. I've been fluctuating between extremes now for weeks; there's disappointment each day where I don't get a phone call from BU and there's relief if I survived the day without being swept up in a wave of waitlists (sorry to those who were just waitlisted today) and rejections. Surely it can't be much longer now. Hopefully there's a phone call from BU in my future.

BU also requires Need Access: http://www.needaccess.org/ <- they only require parental info on Need Access if you're under 24 or 25, I can't remember which but it's on the admitted student's site or finaid someplace.

eta: They also request a copy of your 2010 taxes

Well, I've got your exact numbers. Already accepted, but haven't heard about money yet. Here's hoping I get something similar.

Waitlisted with a 3.1/168...this is a happy, happy surprise. I had decided to forget BU because I was 100% sure I would be dinged.

Time to write that LOCI. =)

Hm. Today has suddenly become a cheerful day.

Hey!
I applied to BU early February (I know, really late) – and I haven’t heard anything. I’m not surprised at all since I applied late, but I was wondering if anyone knows about how long it takes to get decisions and how they come (dings vs. WL vs. acceptance)—whether it’s through mail or e-mail.
Also, does anyone know about how long it takes to get a decision and when the latest we’ll hear by is? I have a couple schools that want a deposit by April 1—so I’m getting nervous I’m not going to hear back by then.
Thanks for any info!

Looking at lsn, it looks like it usually takes 1-2 months to get a decision back. I applied 2/1 and am hoping to hear back by the end of next week.

Is it safe to assume that phone calls are always made for acceptances, and rejections/wl come through snail mail?

I think a lot of people, if not all, got WL-ed via email. I think you are right about the rest, though
