Congrats to you, really.

But JEEZ BU I'm kinda insulted. You're admitting 155s and waitlist me with 169? I dont get it.

But Congrats to you!

Just got an email from BU basically asking for a brief LOCI (I'm still under review). I responded by withdrawing as I already know where I'll be in the fall.

Just missed a call from BU and they didn't leave a message (haven't heard from them since application went complete)? Do I call back or what?

Got an automated message asking me to type in my party's extension. Ugh. I'll see if I get an email or another call in the next hour or two then call the admissions office.

They just called to admit me, so I'd be 95% sure it's good news

Cautious congratulations?

Congrats!

I hope it's good news. My only other call thus far was good news. My BU status checker doesn't reveal anything.

EDIT: I'm in!

Nope, it was a VERY perfunctory call. My numbers are above their medians and the admissions person actually sounded surprised I was so enthusiastic, it was pretty funny. I'm definitely interested in what their offer is.

I submitted my second letter on Thursday and haven't even gotten a confirmation yet. You?

Edit: They just shot me down, but offered to review my request again after deposit deadlines. Anyone think it's worth double depositing in this case?

This just happened to me. I'm not entirely sure, to be honest.

I got a similar response last week about raising scholarship $$. Is it wishful thinking to double deposit in the hope that BU would increase scholarship $$? Right now I have 15k from BU and 18k from BC.

Anyone have any advice on where people that go to BU normally live? Trying to look at apartments.

If you're looking to practice in Boston, you should go to BC over BU. Hands down.

I should add that BU explicitly said they don't match. I bet you could get a few more $$$ out of BC though.
