Hey, heyyyy! :mrgreen:

Plan on applying soon. Not sure how interested I'd be, unless they throw heavy $$. Seems like they have a decent reputation here on TLS.

Mmm! Thank you.

How fast did they respond to you? The link suggests they're pretty quick about it.

Yup I did the same and got it in less than a day as well. Also used similar wording to the tls suggestion (not exact of course).

Anyone know how their oci is doing this year? Their last employment results were not great compared to peer schools... Hoping it's jut a fluke.

Ah, you're 2 years senior then :P Best of luck!

For those of you who don't know, the LAW tower is being remodeled and expanded to accommodate a larger first few floors to have all the classes and the upper levels converted into administrative offices. No word on if the outside facade will be modernized. The current construction is expected to finish in 2013 with another 15 months of remodeling indoors after the new wing is constructed: http://www.bu.edu/bostonia/web/law/.

Thanks for the update! I also heard this from a 2L. Have you seen any of the finished plans shadow?
