Is there always a status update the day calls go out?

I got a call and a status update without noticing. So, I think so, but I can't tell you for sure if my update came before or after the call. They emailed me about a week before calling asking what I had been doing since I left my last job (happen to have started a new one).

I had one.

Also shout out to BU moving up in the rankings!

#27!


I wonder how much the new law school is going to help them move up?

Thought I'd contribute my timeline for those interested

LSAT between 50th and 75th
GPA between 25th and 50th

Sent in late January. Complete 3 days later. No movement until I got an email asking for further information in the last week of February. Complete on 3/7, acceptance call on 3/10.

How long has it taken the acceptance packages to reach people?

Did anybody else get the email to "Dear (Contact First Name)" that was basically a list of why BU is, like, totally cooler than Harvard because they did a bunch of stuff before Harvard thought it was cool?

An email about their history or something. That Dear Contact First Name thing is funny.

FWIW: submitted mid-october, accepted late january via phone, received admit package with scholarship information ($35,000 a year) a couple weeks later. 168/3.8. Looking forward to ASW, and hoping to get more in need-based aid. Happy to see the climb in rankings :D

Anyone know the lowest stats admitted thus far? I'm below 25th for both. Just curious! Mom a BU alum, but still radio silent since going complete mid-feb.

I was accepted back in Feb with 170/3.7 but haven't received any merit scholarship package. I sorta figured I would by now. Anyone else in a similar position? I filled out the fafsa etc.
