Same. I picked up a US Certified Mail ticket from the post office today. BU admissions address written on the envelope. Have a blank check ready to go for however much the deposit is. Just get me that damn packet! :D

Got my acceptance info today. No scholly info :( Word on the street is that it can come later? Also, from what I've heard BU can be quite lenient in negotiating. Can anyone confirm this?

I don't know if lenient is the word. Willing, yes. But I don't know if I got lucky or if they do it commonly. And if you guys have any questions about the school, there are a number of BU students on these forums who would be happy to answer.

I have realized that I have no clue what my fate will be with BU...I'm below both medians, but only barely 165/3.62 (of course below is below, i suppose), but I actually thought my app was pretty strong for them. Now that I had waited this long, I figured I'd get dinged, but with WLs coming out for people with lower numbers than mine; and I'm not WL'd yet....I really don't know what to think.

Nothing included in mines. Anyone know if any scholarship will always be included in the packet?

Looks like you've been accepted to some really strong schools. Leaning any particular way?

To bump up my question:

I didn't receive any scholarship with my packet unlike others. Does this mean no scholarship?

Also still waiting. Maybe they will reward our 3 month wait with large scholarships?
