Sent in 11/24 and no I haven't heard anything yet. Im 167/3.88 so I'm assuming they just haven't reached our pile.

I got scholly info with my acceptance packet as well. Maybe they're switching it up?

I feel like they tend to do Thursday phone calls. But I am not sure.

They do usually do them later in the week but who knows this week--ALMOST every office in Boston is closing tomorrow for another snow emergency. Though I am really hoping mine closes, I am equally hoping BU stays open so more calls come out this week!

A BU call would make a snow day even BETTER. Please BU?

I'm pretty sure Admissions offices just plug our numbers into that Law School Predictor website and do what it says. Buncha slackers!

Definitely not. I'm an auto-admit @ BC and they "held" me.

If only it was so easy.

I wrote my PS about how I want to be a gunner and hide books in the library. Do you think that was a bad move??

Definitely a bad move, you should have also mentioned that you want to sit in the front of the class and ask questions that will probably annoy everybody else. I hope you at least single spaced your PS. :D

Hidden library books is TTT. They can be found and returned. Ripping out pages, placing magnets over other people's laptops, and stealing car batteries on exam day is more appropriate.

For the record, I doubt BU is even open today. I wouldn't be expecting calls today.

I don't know what to do about BU! I would consider it with a scholly, otherwise I'd like to withdraw and not be a jerk for hanging in there, but I haven't heard anything about $. It looks like on LSN most people with big scholarships so far are URMs?

+1. No reason to go without some scholarship info BU- does it come separately or in the main envelope?

Main envelope. At least mine did--though I am a URM.

Just looked over their materials again, and they say money can be offered at any time. There's also need based supposedly... I guess I can't withdraw from anywhere until I complete my FAFSA etc.
