Anyone else waiting on that?


Glancing at Law School Numbers, it looks like the highest award is $60,000 so far, with many people getting offered $45,000 and $30,000 packages as well.


BU offered me just over $100,000 for 3 years, and it came with my admission packet in the mail. just wanted to throw this out there since I don't update LSN with $ awards.

The highest they've given so far is $105,000. I received just under what Marshmallow's offer is.

Congrats to both of you on good aid from a good school!

Do you mind sharing GPA/LSAT?

Thank you and I won't hold refusal against you.

Numbers for those interested: 161/3.77
45k total. Surprised I got anything with the LSAT score bringing me down.

Did your scholarship offers come by mail or e-mail?

I had update times identical to yours. Just above median for GPA, just below median for LSAT.

Applied Tuesday, still no confirmation email/status checker...

Should I be worried?

Only asking because every other school seems to send this email almost immediately after submitting...

FWIW, it took 3 days after submitting my app to receive a status checker email.

Nah, don't worry about it. I submitted my BU app on a Friday and received the notification e-mail the following Tuesday. Some schools take 4-5 business days. I'd wait 6-7 business days before reaching out to the admissions office to check. As long as you have the receipt from LSAC, it's all good.

Checking in.

I recently sent in my application and received my first complete this morning and then a second one just a few minutes ago. Hopefully two completes over the course of a few hours means I'll get an answer soon? Fingers crossed!

Congratulations to everyone who's been accepted so far and good luck to the rest of us :)

Two completes on the same day? That sounds unusual. To everyone: is it?

How can you tell you got 2 completes in a day? Wouldn't they both have today's date?

Do you mean you had a complete yesterday (2/5) and then another today (2/6)? If that's the case, then I think you're likely to get a decision shortly.

How recently did you submit?
