BU says their median is 167. so their median and 75th is 167.

do you have a LSN profile? we have nearly identical numbers.

Does, or has, anyone found it worthwhile to contact admissions in some format to show their interest in BU? Does BU respond well to that type of initiative?

No, I might make one though to contribute to the aggregate data. I saw that you updated 1/3, when did you submit?
