asking you to call them in Jan? thats weird. Never heard of them interviewing. Is it for RD? What are your #s?


Yeah, that's pretty weird, and it will be a call with two AOs...I apply RD, and submitted mid-Oct. LSAT 168 and GPA: above average (international applicant so no gpa...) maybe that's the reason? :roll:

No gpa could be it! i think its overall a good thing that they want more detail

Same here with a 168, went complete 11/9 and have heard nothing since (the continual updates to this thread talking about status updates pain me haha). It could be because of my low GPA.


+1. Must be holding off on the low GPA kids.

At least I'm not the only one! I have a 3.6, which I didn't think was low, but maybe they're going through the autoadmits/ dings first. Although I honestly thought I was pretty close to an audoadmit....

You are not above both medians...you are not an auto admit. I still like your chances though in a cycle of declining medians.

I agree, which is why I said "pretty close" :-) thanks for liking my chances in a cycle of declining medians though!

BU really making us wait. I wonder if it makes a difference to them if you got their undergraduate degree from there

Regular decision. They said some RDs could hear back by mid-to-late December...hope that applies to me...

It is surprising that nobody has heard back yet. It seems like a few RDers had heard by now last year. Its possible that they want to get ED decisions out before RD.

I myself am an ED and it would be great to hear before the 20th of the result.

Good luck you guys, and once you get in, if you need housing ...

I'm a current student and have availability in my apartment as a summer sublet (beginning as early as May) as well as the option to take over my part of the lease come next fall. I have one room in a two bedroom with spacious kitchen in Brighton for $750/month. Heat and hot water included.

I only live about 20 miles away, and all we have is just unexpected warm weather. Maybe they're depressed we don't have snow yet? :)
