2 "complete" updates in 3 days. I see my auto reject decision is going quite swimmingly!

I think there may have been one ding based off the BC thread, but not sure if it was actually sent yesterday.

Here's to another day at work checking for missed calls every 15 minutes, while hoping no partners walk by!

Likely one more update. But it does seem like there has been a lot of movement lately.

I was also updated today, and my previous update dates match yours. I'm thinking I either got in and they didn't get around to calling me today. Or (probably more likely, given my GPA) I got the ding today and was willfully not called.

How long did you have to wait after receiving your packet for the scholarship letter? Got the travel stipend email, but still no word on money.

I got the acceptance call on 1/11 and the scholarship letter 2/4.

No way you would be dinged with your LSAT. I am sure they are trying to keep their lsat median at a 166. Worst case scenario is wait list. For those who truly think that BU would be a top choice, or any school for that matter, I highly suggest you send in an LOCI. Last Wednesday when it seemed that everyone with my numbers had gotten the call, I decided to send in a LOCI. I got in a week later.

If you are in range, and send in LOCI at this point of the cycle, I think it can pay dividends. Obviously, this isn't the case for everywhere. For example, I don't think an LOCI would do much for deferred applicants at COrnell at this point since the deadline was Feb 1st.

But a school like BU that is taking its time, could make the difference. Just my two cents.

JesusChrist, we're kinda in similar boats since we are both numbers twins. I got an update on 2/4 and didn't get one today...

Hoping I don't get dinged.

Per Dream Weave's suggestion, I wrote BU a letter. As an FYI to anyone not in the northeast, BU Law offices will be closed on Feb 8 because of "the approaching major winter storm". They'll reopen Monday. So unless they are some really dedicated admissions people, no decisions will be handed out tomorrow I guess. Nuts.
