I was called yesterday around 2:30 PM. :-D

I'm afraid Boston might be a little cold for me but it's somewhere I'll be seriously considering.

Good luck to everyone waiting. I experienced the same anxiety waiting for Texas to call... literally about a week of my life was thrown away worrying and obsessing. My advice is to make yourself as busy as possible.

Does anyone know what the story is if you didn't get a scholly with your acceptance packet? I'm above both 75ths and got nothing. Does that mean that I definitely won't get anything, or have people been getting scholly info after getting nothing in their packets? It seems that last year a lot of people got schollys later, but this year it seems to be mostly included with the packet. Thoughts?

That BU acceptance packet can't get to my house fast enough. I NEED IT TO CONFIRM I WASN'T F'ING DREAMING WHEN THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE CALLED.

At/Above 75ths with LORs tailored specifically to BU and a paragraph in my PS about why I liked them, and I didn't get anything in my packet.

Again, there's a boatload of snow here in Boston. Don't get too stressed out today. I think calls are unlikely.

I hate when people respond like this...but...seriously? In the amount of time it is taking you to post this in all these threads you could have easily gone to your admit packet (I'm assuming your admitted, or you wouldn't have a reason to care about deposit deadlines), or look at the schools' websites.

BU classes before 11 were cancelled this morning so I wouldn't expect any calls for a bit still....

Not necessarily...they might be curious if they'll have time to hear back from other places before committing to BU, even if they're not already in.

Anyone know when decisions are made regarding a joint/dual degree if you've already been admitted to the law school? I applied to the LLM joint if it helps

Ah, didn't know there was a boatload of snow in BOS. I can't say I've been paying too much attention to what's going on up East this week :mrgreen: whoops!

Yeah, but your tar is prettier than mine :)

Half-day snow day. Don't expect calls until the afternoon.

I don't think anyone is offended. It's just a tense atmosphere right now. Many of us really want an acceptance from BU so it kinda stings when someone already accepted starts talking about stuff like deposit deadlines. (Usually that's in the "Discuss your law school" forum anyway.) But no worries!

I don't expect a call today; unfortunately my reason has nothing to do with snow (167/3.0).
