Got the acceptance call. Can't wait for the admit packet! Status checker unchanged- and I think it remains that way for quite a while (based on other posts).

If we didn't hear back RE waitlist/acceptance today, should we assume the worst? I was expecting an easy shoo in acceptance but it doesn't look that way anymore...

Not necessarily but it's getting down to the wire, given that their deposit deadline is a month out. If you were expecting an easy acceptance maybe you're being yield-protected? If you're still interested in BU you could send them a LOCI

At this point I guess I'll just wait to hear back RE waitlist/rejection. I don't want to send the LOCI if they're just going to let me know tomorrow or something. Just frustrating cause I'm above both medians and well above LSAT 75th

Also in the same boat. Really surprised that I've heard nothing from BU

Guess I'm not calling in to check on my ASD status today - good luck with the weather to anyone in the Boston/North of or in D.C. areas today!

You can just go here to register http://www.bu.edu/law/admissions/admitted-students/jd-first-year-students/events/preview-days/

I'm pretty sure I registered twice because I couldn't remember if I had already done it.

so far so good with the snow!! Only about an inch or two. Of course, it just started a couple hours ago. You guys sure you wanna come to Boston? It was 60 degrees out just a few days ago. So much fun! :D

I think I already did, but I might do it one more time to be sure.

And when I came up for BC's ASD it was your guy's warmest February day ever, we'll see if BU can pull the same thing off.

Feb was insane!!! we had a couple days that almost hit 70. I never want to complain about warm weather but it really does suck walking outside with no jacket one day and shoveling two feet of snow the next

Is BU admissions out today? So I shouldn't be anxiously waiting for a phone call today?

Has anyone had luck with scholarship negotiations? Got a higher offer from BC and am hoping BU will at least match.

Don't think anyone has heard back either way yet.
