Well, I was accepted the week before Christmas and have yet to hear. Others have said that they got it in a few days. So I guess it depends. :|

but congratulations and celebrate getting in for now! Worry about scholarship and deciding where to go once you get the info. That's what I'm doing/trying to do.


yeah i'm a little freaked out about the lack of scholarship information as well...but I figure patience is important and there is no set pattern so it really could come at any time! I was accepted 12/22 and have yet to hear...but the admissions office was probably closed over the holidays so who knows what is going on there

i am dying to go there...but i need to hear about scholarship stuff first. In my head I'm considering going even without money...which of course will be a financially devastating life choice haha

So I submitted 11/20 and went complete 12/1... no updates since then. Do you suppose that I should call the office to make sure that everything is okay with my application? I know that there are some 12/6 folks in the same boat but wasn't sure if that was your second update after your first complete. Thanks!

Same. I love BU. However, I have a full ride elsewhere, so going at full cost? Not so smart. Sigh.

I would not suggest doing this. Admissions generally know what they are doing with apps and it does often take some time between complete and under review, so that isn't really abnormal - especially if you consider how many people submitted ahead of you. If it doesn't update in another few weeks, then maybe, but I would want to avoid being labeled THAT person.

Yo.

Again, though, I had a pending score, so I may be at 12/6 because of that.

Just got a fee waiver here. Now I'm trying to decide if I should even bother applying.

Well, considering that I'm applying extra late and all, I want to at least have one of the B's for an "if all else fails" situation.

I haven't had any movement on the schools that aren't safeties.

In via phone call today at 4:30. I think my last update was right before Christmas break began.
