So, I'm in the same boat re: scholly $$. They say that you can receive a scholarship at any time after you are admitted, and it looks like last year a lot of people did receive money after they got their acceptance. However, it's been almost a month since I was admitted and still nothing. Time to start calling them?

I'm feeling the same way. I want to know when I will find out if I am awarded any money but also if/when I would find out if I was not. Are they going to tell you if you aren't getting any money?

I requested a status update. I'm scared they're just going to respond "REJECTED."

I'm too scared to do this. But the worst they'll say is "We've reached a decision and will be contacting you shortly."

Just out of curiosity, where can you find the form to request a status update?

Hey, I just checked on my email I got from them about my app going complete and it said to email bulawadm@bu.edu for status updates.

Haha. I'm sure we're all going to get the generic "File is complete and under review."
The admissions process has driven us all insane.
But good luck to everyone anyway! <3

Ohai I see my name popping up!

So everyone just requested status updates? Should I join the club? I swore off status checkers for the week...

Haha, I just requested too. They'll respond that it has only been two weeks since we received your app, chill out!

EDIT: They responded a couple hours later that my app is complete, ha, at least it's progress.

Meh, I didn't request. I am curious to see if it moves anyone along towards getting a call, though!

We shall see, I guess... If I were to get a phone call from them, though, I don't care how long it would take. Tomorrow? Amazing. March? I'm fine with that. AS LONG AS ITS AN ACCEPTANCE. I'm really scared that they'll just WL me like they did last cycle. :(

Still pulling for you, Gemini :) I have not checked any status checkers so far this week (trying to continue my self-imposed ban), so I figured requesting from BU would violate that... keep me posted on what happens!
