I'm hoping mine comes today. She said on Friday it would be mailed out Monday and I assume Boston -> NJ would be a 2-3 day trip for priority.

My admit package arrived today. Includes some pretty viewbooks and such, an admission letter (with a nice handwritten note referencing my PS) but no scholarship offer. There was a paragraph in the admission letter about aid that referred to the FinAid Office phone number and, on a separate form letter, the statement "A student may be offered a merit scholarship at the time of admission or at any time later in the admissions season."

168/3.52/6 years WE for those too lazy to search my post history. I thought I might get some scholarship from BU but wasn't sure. I'll update in the future if anything does come along.

ETA: From last year's thread (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=134353&start=175) -- about halfway down the page, dakatz mentions that scholarship offer came about a week after the admission letter, by postal mail.

I'm betting we (maybe not us specifically, but people in this thread generally) will have a few phone calls tomorrow.

That would be nice... I mean, I have a final tomorrow, so that has to increase the chances of me getting the phone call during those 2 hours.

Have any Ed'ers heard back yet? I'm interested to see which TLS'ers got the full ride.

I also applied ED and am waiting to hear back. Glad to hear that there are others in the same boat, I've been keeping my fingers crossed all week, I'm at 12/5 also.

And it's only 3:00, there's still time... right?
