Got my admission packet today. No money offer yet, but I got a bitchin set of sticky notes. Idk, is a packet of sticky notes from BU worth more than a full ride to Minnesota? Decisions, decisions...

Hey, I'll take what I get. Anyways, I'm hoping they'll send out something more after they get FASFA and stuff.

If it's the latter, save it. If it's the former it's worth a shot. They don't have the best ranking on USNWR but they are a solid school and very well regarded in the area.


I am pretty sure Northeastern... New England Law is just NEL.

That's what I thought but just making sure because New England is pretty laughable.

NEU = Northeastern Univ.

NEL = New England Law

I went to NEU undergrad on a scholly so I'm hoping my negotiations will look like this:

BU/BC offer minimal money.

Take money offer from BU/BC to NEU and negotiate for as close to full as possible (performance there undergrad + acceptances/offers at way better ranked schools).

Take big offer from NEU to BU/BC in hopes of leveraging some more $.

In a perfect world....

or just always peer leverage BU/BC I suppose...

Oh right it's not New England University Lol, excuse my dumbness.

Also I'd say that sounds like a solid plan.

It's more so a case of backtracking. There was a gap after I graduated that was less than six months, so I didn't include anything in my resume about it. (Pretty standard, from what I've read.) No other schools have asked about it, though.

BU sent me a similar email asking about a gap in my resume and I received an acceptance phone call seven days later. So hopefully this is good news for you!

Same deal here on the email request, but it has been more than seven days. *gulp*

+1. I browsed last year's thread, and it looks like they were announced in March.

Do you remember if it was early, mid, or late March? (+1 to the waiters.) Also, how many complete dates did people get? I submitted 12/28, went complete 1/10 and then again 1/11, and complete again at 2/3.

Yeah, this would be my first choice if I go the public interest scholarship, but right now I'm looking at full COA at BU versus 45k at Fordham and 75k at WUSTL. I want to start negotiating but I don't want to irritate them if I'm a serious candidate for the public interest scholarship.

Looks like mid-March. Only one person mentioned getting a scholarship last year, and she didn't say anything about complete dates. I updated again today...I'm wondering if all the PI people are in a special pile somewhere!
