Checking in ED. Numbers are competitive for RD but I have a feeling that full ride is a long shot.

What kind of numbers do you think make one competitive for ED?

Speculation based on TLS browsing, but I would guess at/above 75ths. Since it's the first year I really have no clue, but if it goes like GWU's ED program it should be pretty competitive.

For BU Binding Early Decision - it seems to indicate on their website anyone granted admission through ED is awarded a full tuition scholarship? Or am I reading it wrong?

Yes, acceptance under the early decision comes with a full scholarship.

Hey there I will be applying ED even though I am not that competitive but I am hoping EDing will show at least how much I want to attend!

Still debating as to whether or not I want to apply ED . . . that full scholly is super-tempting and competitive, probably wouldn't get it anyway.

wow, didn't recognize you without the SF avatar. LSN has nothing on this cycle, and this is the first time they've done the ED, so I have no idea what to expect. I didn't do as well on the LSAT as I had hoped... :oops:

Same here. I sacrificed my splitter friends avatar because I didn't earn it :( I sent you a pm a little while ago, we were all wondering where you disappeared to!

BU changed it's ED this cycle to a full-tuition scholarship?

I don't even think they've had an ED option up until this year. But yea, it's called the "distinguished scholars program" and it's full boat.
