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?


Since submitting, I've received three separate notifications:
Feb 4: receipt of my application
Today at 10:56AM: complete
Again at 12:37PM: complete

I noticed from this thread that for everyone else, their completes came in on separate days. When I got that second notification today, I too thought it unusual. Maybe they sent it in error?

Hm. A 2/4 receipt and then two completes and a decision would be crazy fast.

Oh..ok. I think most people are referring to the complete dates on the status checker, about which you do not receive an email. For example, I applied on the 1/4, BU acknowledged receipt via email on the 6th and I got the app complete email on the 10th. Then my status checker date also updated on 1/16 and 1/29. I didn't get emails for the latter date changes.

Got the acceptance packet over a week ago and no scholly in the packet. :( Still no word on scholly yet. Does this mean I'm out of the running for a scholly or is there still a chance?

UR #4 as of today. I wonder if they ever make decisions on the same day they make a status date change? Would really like a decision soon. This would be the 3rd update in about 3 weeks, the last update being a week ago...

I think I got a call on either the third or fourth UR day.


Good to know! I'll have to keep an eye on my phone today.

I haven't been admitted, so I can't be 100% confident, but I don't think BU has a separate UR status. Just your the complete date changes. So you're likely to get a response somewhat soonish.

This is true. My bad. It does just say complete.

You guys mention that there are email updates for statuses with regard to when they change completion. How do you get em??

for those are you who got in after being interviewed, how long it took for them to reach a decision?

Yeah! Admitted students days are March 21 and April 4, I believe. Hotels are insanely expensive those weekends, though, so I was wondering if anyone knows the benefits of going on those days instead of visiting another time? What exactly do they do on admitted students days?

Thanks!

I don't know about BU's schedule, but I think at these things there's usually a class lecture to sit in on--sometimes it's a class of all prospies and the professors cold-call so you get a sense of what it's like. A tour. A lunch. Lots of people talking to you. Mingling opportunities.


There's a full schedule listed on the admitted student site. :) Lunch, lecture, panels, etc.

What do you think is the probability that no merit award notification in the admissions packet means there'll be no merit aid?
