Damn you for bumping this thread! :cry:
Not yet. Maybe Thursday/Friday? That seems to be the norm.

Just got an email requesting my fall transcript...does this mean they like everything else and just wanna make sure my fall grades are good before accepting me? Or should I not expect to get admitted unless my fall gpa is around 4.0? Pretty nervous...

*waves fist* Dang it Gemini! ;)

I hope we hear soon as well, I'm feeling rather in limbo with the no waitlist, no ding, no call, no nothing...

Do all admits get a phone call or do some just get notified via snail mail?

Complete 11/17 and no idea of UR date...

Admit - phone call
WL - seems to be email, which is different from last cycle
rejection- seems to be mail, but correct me if I'm wrong.

Please call me, BU!

I WISH!!!!! I'm afraid the non response may just mean we are in their next batch of decisions overall (which means WL or a ding as well).

Or maybe the non response means nothing. I think I drove Gotti crazy yesterday talking about it with her lol.

Me too! Complete/UR since 11/23. I don't know why it takes 2 months to push my application into the reject, accept, or WL category lol.

I was waitlisted 2 years ago and now I have a higher LSAT, a masters, 2 yrs of Teach for America, and i won BU undergrad's most prestigious community service award. Shouldn't that be enough to nudge me into acceptance land? C'mon BU help an alum out :-)

The wait is so frustrating!

I think I submitted a status check shortly after I applied in November and I remember it taking like 2 weeks for them to respond. I think we all have to face it, BU is messing with us, and they're enjoying it way too much to just give it up with a status check.

Nah, I didn't. Only because I already know that I'm "Complete and UR" as per an email on 11/23. And I did call a few weeks ago to confirm that my status hasn't changed....I was tempted though.

This is what drove me crazy. A bunch of people here (read back a few pgs) decided to send in requests. They never responded to me. Does this mean they don't like me? Or maybe that my decision is coming out soon? I'm not the only poster here who didn't get a response but the majority did. So now I'm going crazy wondering why they responded to some but not to others. (I didn't even get an automated email)

Most likely scenario: They're overwhelmed like most admissions offices during this time of year and just missed your email. It's not like it's the high ranking admissions people that check the email, it's more likely some undergrad in a work-study position. So they wouldn't really have any motivation to not respond to you.
