+1. Accepted batch notified by Thanksgiving would be even better.

Seriously considering a last minute ED application. 169/3.94/non-URM. Anyone have any idea if that makes me competitive for this? They don't really indicate how many of these spots are available. Would I be better off just applying regularly and waiting to hear back from Michigan, UVA, Penn, etc.?

Agreed. Unless you are super debt adverse and love Boston.

to those people who have gone complete: does your BU status thing say that they have received your early decision contract? I have thrown that piece of paper at them every way I know how and still haven't gotten confirmation :)

No, it doesn't, but I don't think my file would have gone complete without it. I emailed it in and they emailed me back confirming they got it.

T1, ED program = Full Scholly.

Superficial similarity. Poor comparison.

out of something like 500-800 ED applicants, about 20-30 people get in Early Decision - but that was just the case in one year, I didn't study it too intensively so it might be different every time

I think a good rule of thumb is that if you are above the 75th percentiles, then you have a shot at ED with a full scholarship. Otherwise, your chances are probably not great (if at all).

From looking at LSN it seems like a few years back their LSAT requirement was lower but as the economy gets crappier people with better numbers are applying ED to GW.

Hey, I was just making the parallel that he was making. I never said he was right.

Especially, since BU's ED program is brand spanking new and there is nothing to compare it to.

I, personally, ED'd to GW because I feel I like the school better than I like BU. But I did apply to BU as well. So we'll see what happens.

that makes sense. I'm just a little on edge because my GPA is below the 75% but my LSAT is above it and its very hard to predict what will happen.

My point was simply that looking at BU's numbers, even though the program doesn't have any precedent as it is new, was probably a better indicator of the numbers you would need to gain admittance through their ED program. Not trying to call anyone out here, just pointing out that looking at BU itself may shed more light.
