Everyday I don't get a phone call, it hurts more and more. I REALLY, REALLY want BU. I love it so much and I've been waiting almost 2 months. 164/3.82 (I wish I just had a few more points on the lsat... dammit.

You're non trad though so that counts for something.

You'd think so, wouldn't you? LOL. I used to think that law schools truly were holistic, but as this cycle wears on and I've only been accepted at tier 2 schools, it becomes more and more apparent that they really do only look at the LSAT and GPA and their USNWR rank and they really don't even care about GPA.

Sad =/

I am a little confused. 3.88. LSAT 170. Two letters of recommendation tailored to how the I will fit in well at BU in particular. A personal statement geared to one of their dual degrees. Softs people generally consider unique and above average.

No call.

I really wouldn't worry about it at all. Your numbers aren't really in YP territory, especially if you wrote essays geared towards BU. It's still plenty early in the cycle.

At first, I was going to say maybe they haven't called that many people yet, but LSN suggests there's been quite a few. Very strange.

I don't think it looks like that many. Hopefully you will hear soon

From looking at last year's LSN data, it seems like most of the admits with full scholarship offers came out mid-January. It's possible you'll fall in that group.

Um yes. I'd like to think that...though it's very unlikely for me at least.

Does anyone know if the call shows the phone number or if it comes as anonymous or whatever?
The reason I'm asking is because I received a call at around 6 but it didn't tell me who it was from and when I answered it sounded really staticy and they hung up like 4secs after

I haven't received a call (yet, hopefully), but if I remember right from previously in this thread, it shows up as a Boston number (617).

Congrats to those that are in! I have been complete since 11/11 and am DYING. I know there are others out there who are still waiting like I am but with people going complete later in the cycle getting in I am really hoping that I'm not destined for the WL or reject. I REALLY want BU.

Hopefully more calls soon!

When they called me I was away from my phone and they left a voicemail. I had a missed call from a 617 number.

Ha, yeah...miracles have happened. Not to me, so I think I'm due.

Getting accepted sometime in the future would be nice, too.

I wish BU gave a more specific timeline like most other schools give 8 weeks for a response. I've been complete since early November and I'm going crazy!
