That's fantastic! Congrats! This wasn't the public interest scholly was it? What are your numbers?

It is a "Boston University School of Law Merit Scholarship"... if BU is as generous with need-based schollys as they are with merit I will be a happy girl.

I have a 3.9 GPA, high 160, and I'm a URM

This has to happen. Also a 5 year reunion that we should have in Boston in honor of where it all began.

And speaking of Dan. I picture some dude in a room filled with computer monitors watching our every move. I knew it wasn't an accident that we are all stuck on 12/6. The question is why? What does Dan want with us? We are starting to uncover the conspiracy, and I feel a season finale coming on very soon…


Also, I am demanding a secret handshake.

I feel as if Dan has a great, and perhaps sinister, plan for us. He will be the lead antagonist in our movie.

Cali kid. WL'd at UCI, haven't heard from USC yet. BU's looking like my top choice! scary because I've never been to the east coast for significant periods.

Anyone know what my chances of cali employment are out of BU?

Oh yea for sure handshake is a top priority.

This is perfect. This Dan is a really sketchy individual, which we need in our movie since up until now it was a just a bunch of people being awesome the whole time. But did you notice, ever since this guy confusedlaw went public with his knowledge of Dan, he has been suspiciously absent from this thread. I fear Dan has gotten to him.

There are only two probable explanations for confusedlaw's absence:
1. He tried to warn us of Dan, only to have Dan's henchmen come and throw a black bag over his head and steal him into the night (a la V for Vendetta)

orrrrr

2. He is actually working for Dan and is trying to lure the twelve 6 mafia into a trap

The plot thickens.

Oh.My.God.

So does his absence mean he's currently out trying to find us? Or perhaps reviewing our apps??

Oh I believe Dan was done reviewing our apps a long time ago. I think our apps are the reason we're in this mess.

I feel like this is LOST and y'all are trying to figure out more about the island. Please continue--this and the Michigan thread are my favorites. (We should all meet IRL.)

...unless, of course, DAN is an acronym for something sinister and we all get intercepted...

I guess Dan's username gives credence to BU admissions' view on our applications: Very...confused.

This is exactly like LOST. Twelve 6 is a group of people, stranded on an island(metaphorical), that have some connection to each other that we don't yet know. I wish I would have kept watching that show to see how this is all going to end…

Soooo new plot development: I was just perusing the Vandy thread and our mysterious friend confusedlaw (aka disciple of Dan) posted: "is anyone else at 12 6"

COINCIDENCE??? I think not.

Also, I'm willing to wager that we write, film, win an Oscar for, and begin producing a sequel to our movie (tentatively titled: Twelve 6) before BU gets around to updating our status checkers.

Got in over 2 months ago and still haven't heard a word about a scholarship. Would it be wrong to inquire about potential merit aid at this point? I'd approach like it a regular negotiation and mention my other good offers. I don't want to withdraw without hearing any offer from them, but at this point I'm likely going in another direction and would like to open up a spot for another deserving applicant.

Yeah it's been strange. Some people get offers in their packets, others like me don't hear anything for months.

Someone on LSN with my exact stats + non-URM received a hefty scholly, I would love to receive equal schollys. But right now I'm hoping that they'll match my WUSTL scholly.

My best friend applied last year with practically identical stats as you (169/3.80) and he said he didn't hear back until early April (after applying in October). Not saying it will be the exact same as last year, but BU Admissions clearly takes their jolly good time.
