Nice! Do you think you have any strong softs that helped? I'm wondering because I have 166/ 3.6+ which seem to be close to your numbers, but they only offered me 60K. I want to see if I can negotiate with them
166, 3.7, stuck at complete since 11/9....and now officially nervous! when did you go complete?
I think all of us admitted RD so far were deferred from ED. So I don't think you should worry too much. I went complete 11/12
thanks for mentioning that! makes sense!
ams929: i was ed to rd also, so don't fret!
edwardt1988: the soft factor that i believe helped me most was the improvement i showed over time. during my first two years of undergrad i had a 3.1, but during my last five quarters i held a gpa between 3.93 and 4.1. also during those five quarters i was working 18 hours a week, assisting a grad student with his research, serving as president to club sports team, and had a 3 month internship. i also like to think my personal statement helped a bit (pm me if you want to read it).
as for negotiating more money, i haven't looked into how much boston tends to negotiate, but 5k a year is not a ton of money to a law school. given that, I'd like to think BU wouldn't mind throwing you a bit more cash. good luck
