I wonder why it's taking them so much longer than last yr

Perhaps some sort of natural disaster... Maybe a tornado or something ;)


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? :)

I meant Sandy haha


Lol I got that part, but I highly doubt it would have an effect. It wasn't that bad for Boston...

Wasn't the entire east coast shut down for a week or so?

Boston wasnt really affected too much. A couple hundred lost power in the state but I live basically a few miles from BU and never lost power and even went for a walk during the storm. BU may have shut down for a day or two but I don't think it would have had a huge impact on admissions.

Well that's not totally true. The suburbs with trees lost a ton of power, and almost 400k lost power, though I will admit not in Boston proper.

I work in lower Manhattan, and we didn't get to delay any deadlines as a result of Sandy. I'd be a little bitter if BU used that as an excuse.

Update for me as well! This is my first, and I went complete 10/25. I am trying to be optimistic (which is now bordering on delusion) but I hope this means good news :D

So BU decided to let us ED candidates(or at least some of us) wait until as close to the 20th as possible. Awesome

Well it's after 5PM EST now. Another day, another lack of decisions. :(

At least we know we have to see some movement before Friday.

Any theories as to why they're taking longer than previous years?

Because they're sadists.

I'm guessing it's more of a challenging cycle for them to figure out, so they're waiting for more apps. But that doesn't explain why they haven't accepted anyone. I'm sure there's plenty of applicants that they would have taken last yr, so I'm surprised they haven't moved on those people yet.

I would assume this is right. As for the lack of any acceptances, the only thing I can figure is they want to settle their ED acceptances (and thus tied up scholarship commitments) before accepting people RD who they will probably want to give some money.

Then again, the sadist theory sounds solid too.
