I think most people received them in their acceptance packets, which is where mine was. I'm sure you've already checked, but are you sure it wasn't included in there? It seems you'd be a prime candidate for a scholarship.

Yes I've looked through twice. I'll check a third time when I get home. If it's not there should I contact OOA?

Emory gave me 90 but I wanna be in boston over ATL :(

I am!!! They haven't given me jack. My numbers aren't as high but they're definitely above both medians (my LSAT is above 75th).

Use it to negotiate! :) An offer from Emory should definitely help get you some money.

BC offered me more, but between the two, I like BU better.


I think it's worth a shot. There's definitely some Boston competition there, regardless of rank. Plus, the worst that happens is you ask, they say no, and you're in the same monetary position you're in now.

Is there a particular address you contact for negotiation, or is it the admissions email?

Admitted on 1/28 and still waiting on $. I spoke with the financial aid office and they said they decide on need and merit aid at the same time in some cases.

Date change 3/7, 3/10, and now 3/13. I'm wondering if this is good or bad... has anyone else had dates this close together? I hope it's good lol :)

My application became complete on 3/6. Any clue as to when I should expect a decision?

I haven't received ANY updates since my application was received/complete upon submission. Am I the only one who hasn't had ANY date changes/updates?

Please PM me how this works out. I have a 75k offer from Emory and 45k from BU and am trying to get BU to match the offer
