Good to know, thanks for sharing.
Applied: 11/5
Complete: 11/8
The wait begins...

LawLucy, how did your application get complete so fast? I applied a week earlier than you, but haven't gone complete yet.

Also, Just got a viewbook (and fee waiver I'd already gotten) in the mail, and I have to say, I'm really dissappointed by the quality of the viewbook :/

Please read the thread before asking. Only 2 pages to cover


In the time it took you to reprimand him or her, you could have answered the question.

The information is fine, but the print and production quality, along with the aesthetics, are severely lacking, especially compared to peer schools. (USC, eg). Why is every third page a large picture of a random student or faculty member, with only 2 pictures of boston or the campus? I know BU's campus is ugly, but come on.

It's a theme of "B(be) U(you)." But I agree, they didn't pull it off, which resulted in an unattractive viewbook (comparing to Michigan or Cornell).

I have to say, Cornell's viewbook is impossibly good. It takes your attention off the fact that it is located in Siberia.

I THOUGHT I went into review according to the email I received. Nada.
I applied 11/5 and found out yesterday, they still haven't received the LSDAS report. wtf?
:o
I have a feeling this is going to be a slow cycle and then BAM, we will all start getting some notification.

Is there a status checker? I just got an email from them saying you're complete, we'll keep you posted. That was a few weeks ago. They also sent me a piece of pie in the mail.

Nevermind on the last part. The pie wasn't from them after all.

Man, I would a pie from BU, and I don't think BU has a status checker.
