In via email. Offered 30k total. How does that stack up against what everyone else is getting?

anyone going to ASD Friday? on the email it says no dress code and that student "dress casually" for class so what is everyone wearing? like actual casual (jeans/nice top) or are you dressing it up?

Still no word. Looking like your boy may not have made the cut.

I haven't heard anything either, the dean who got back to me said they're still sorting out decisions and there'll be more aid decisions coming out through to April.

At least BU emails back. Does BC even have employees?

Hey folks! I will be landing in Boston early Thursday morning after a lovely red-eye flight from San Francisco. I plan on spending the day eating, drinking, and touring. If anyone wants to join, send me a message! If not, see y'all bright and early on Friday for ASD.

For those of you who have had success negotiating with BU- what was the turnaround time?

I applied 1/5-ish and my last complete update was 3/8. I recently emailed them to reaffirm my interest... it's been too quiet.

Hey not trying to freak you two out, or anyone else in your boat, but I know an attorney who applied to BU pretty late in his cycle, and never got a response from the school despite his competitive numbers. Please be aware this was 9 years ago, so how they deal with late-cycle applicants may have changed!

He literally never got a response? Or was he just rejected? Either way, I thought I'd be relatively safe applying in early January... I hope that's not the case with me!

No response. And even if the same thing happens to you, I'm sure whatever pain it causes will subside the instant you attend your first class at NYU :)

Haha. We'll have to see! That'd be pretty disrespectful of BU to give anyone the cold shoulder like that, but then again, I suppose there's nothing stopping them from doing it.
