Just went complete, finally. Since that took over a month, I'm not expecting a decision anytime soon.

Aren't BU acceptances via phone?


I was referring to last year's December acceptances.

They were by phone.

I'm really hoping they follow the pattern they did last year. Last year on that Thursday, it was about 30-40 people on LSN who got decisions (which is obviously just a sample, so there were probably a ton of acceptances).

According to LSN, no.

Do we know if there is a pattern of how decisions are released? Weekly? Biweekly? Or just randomly?

That's what I'm wondering. Also why do you think there will be no decisions today? Didn't someone say earlier that a bunch went out the Thursday after Thanksgiving last year?

If you conveyed half of this enthusiasm in your application (via PS, additional essays, etc.), I wouldn't worry about getting in (assuming you have relatively competitive numbers).

The only additional essay option BU has is a Diversity Statement, which doesn't suit me. I'm a white girl lol. Nothing really diverse about that. :roll:

Here's hoping.

When your grades become available please follow the directions provided by LSAC for updating your transcript information. After we receive an updated Law School Report from LSAC with your most recent grades we will continue review of your application and send you a decision as soon as possible.

I didn't get that either....That being said, the last fall that I went to school was 2003.

Hmm... does that mean like the equivalent of "deferred" like until later in the cycle? Are you a bit of a splitter?

Didn't get it, but people in last years thread mentioned it. I don't remember if there was any pattern to it though.

Yeah I mean I shouldn't really have a shot being a 165/3.65; I was just wondering if I was a special case, if this was standard and what other people who were getting this email were planning on doing.

I have to be honest, I'm not really considering BU at this point but was just surprised that there wasn't any action on this thread earlier today after I'd received the email. I thought it'd be a mass-mailing sort of deal and these sorts of things tend to blow TLS threads up.

That is a little odd since you're not really a splitter. What time did the email come?
