I'm in the middle of a meeting (which you can tell I am giving my undivided attention), getting a call from 617-353-2000 –– a quick Google search tells me this is BU's campus security line.

Is this the number people are getting a call from?

numbers: 167 / 3.5

Haha it's only awkward if you make it awkward. Just say, "Thanks, I'm really happy to hear that."

If I get a call, I'm sure it will be awk :|


This one went to voicemail, but when Minnesota called all I could say was "Cool."

617-353-.... should be BU calling.

Another afternoon where I will no longer be getting any work done, staring at my phone. I've been complete at BU since 11/11! Please call me BU!

Honestly, since BU's number is out there, I might as well put it in my phone and give it its own ringtone. Such as an obnoxiously loud siren.

Haha I mean, I don't think I'll be too awk, it's just that I will probably be completely taken by surprise! (and sitting at my desk at work so I can't hoot and holler in excitement...)

E: RPK, I was jussst debating doing something like this... Contact: BU CONGRATS! or something like that.

Awesome, you're one of the first 166's I've seen so far (including LSN). There's hope!

If I put it as a contact, I'd name it OMG ITS BU. :mrgreen:

I wonder if there's any method to their calling? Perhaps by last names? Does everyone who was accepted today have a last name starting with an early alphabet letter? Like A-F?

I'm 2nd Half of alph for first and last. It most likely just has to do with dates, and how things got batched together by the adcom for review.

And no scholly info, not that I'm likely to get one anyway, but it probably comes via admit pack.

Damn it. So it's not by complete date, it's not by name, it's not by score. HOW DO THEY DO IT?

Haha, that does make me feel better. I would love if I got into BC. I guess we'll see what happens. People with our numbers have gotten into BU, but they had very strong undergrad schools.

Sounds like they're waiting for you to send in your fall grades by updating your transcript information by using the directions provided by LSAC.
