My header changed, that's all though.

hahahahaha. i know, im crazy. but i think its partly because traditionally BU (and to some extent, BC) is pretty quick with calls. Before they started ED program they admitted people before thanksgiving! so i guess i just had high expectations.


I know what you mean, I mapped out a little chart of when I should have expected to hear back from schools based on LSN trends, and four schools (including BC... BU I anticipated around 12/20, so there's still hope) have passed their estimated date... then again, I've also heard back from a handful of schools that I wasn't expecting so soon. It's just not quite as predictable as I anticipated.

agreed. i think this cycle may be throwing some schools off with about 22% decrease in apps (based on some lsac link someone posted)

My header changed within the past hour. I'm an ED candidate and -- if I'm not crazy -- the requirements list has changed and no longer includes the ED contract. I take this to mean that I've been deferred to the RD pool. (Not surprised.)

Anyone else?

Yeah, this cycle is seeming even more unpredictable than people were already anticipating. I have a feeling the WL scramble in mid-Spring is going to be crazier than the wait times now though.

My ed contract is gone, and I just got an email notifying me that I was moved from ED to RD. Oh well... it was a reach! (166, 3.55).

Not ED, but my header changed too (used to say something about ED candidates hearing before 12/20). I would assume you've been deferred. Sorry.

Got this too, but not an ED candidate. You were right about what the changes were.

Also for all the accepted ED-ers (and hopefully soon to be accepted RD-ers) I've gone ahead and created a Class of 2016 group for us:

ED candidate 168/3.55 deferred to RD. Oh well, that full ride would have really helped. I would still go to BU with a substantial scholarship.

My header changed today too, but not my status date. No idea what that means. They sure are taking their sweet time though.

Deferred to RD as well. 3.67/165. Hope I still get in RD. As for when we should get our decisions...I would assume within a couple weeks hopefully as they have probably (hopefully) already reviewed our files completely and wouldnt take much time to look us over again and recognize our applications and make a quick decision. Not sure though.

Was anybody who applied ED denied, as opposed to deferred?

I submitted my application a week ago and went complete yesterday. Today I got an e--mail from BU to ask me interview with them next month.
Anyone have already did interview with BU? Does having the chance to interview mean I have good chance to get accepted?

I am an international applicant so I don't have an UDGPA,and my LSAT score is just at their median.
