When your status changes to "decision rendered" and you don't receive an e-mail immediately does that mean it's a ding? It seems like everyone who got in heard by e-mail. It says the decision letter will be mailed on my status checker. Did anyone get in via snail mail?

show me the money X 2

Both Boston Univ and College are slow...but obviously BU included the $$$ info in their offer letter while BC didn't.

Got in about a month ago and still no word on $$


other schools with $$ are starting to look a bit more attractive now.

So, I got a scholly that is $10K less per year than a school in the top 20. Has anyone had any luck negotiating?

How did you learn that they weren't going to make you an offer? Did you try negotiating? Honestly, BC @ sticker is rough. I'd take the 20k/yr at WUSTL and never look back. Unless you've got deep personal ties to Boston for whatever reason.

I am still waiting for $$.
If they don't match other offers, they are going to lose their best candidates. $192,000.00 over 3 years is a lot to swallow.

Waitlisted this morning via email... Above 75th LSAT, At Median GPA, Applied early January... One of my top 2 choices. Tough one to swallow.

Visit and write a LOCI. I wasnt WL but was held for awhile. They make weird decisions sometimes.

Probably not YP. Im only at 167 LSAT. I have odd softs, been working for a distillery and traveling for 2 years since college, unique definitely but probably not conducive to law school admissions...

And yup I've already begun my LOCI.
