Thanks guys!!! Best of luck to you all. I submitted September 17th and went complete September 19th. I'm overseas right now which is why they emailed instead of called, but they said that everyone else is typically notified by call first in the email, so keep your phones close!

Your application to the Boston University School of Law is complete and ready for review. We will notify you of the Admissions Committee’s decision as soon as it has been reached. While some applicants may hear sooner, a general timeline all applicants can follow is that those who complete their applications by February 1 will most likely receive a decision by early April. Let us assure you that we do our very best to provide decisions as early as the process will allow.

What are your submit/complete dates? I don't know if it's related to decision dates but I definitely think it might be a UR type thing.

That would make sense in terms of a UR stand point.

Here I am, widely postulating about things i have no way of knowing.

I wonder how many people they've already admitted. Based on the tiny sample size of TLS and LSN, it seems like very few have already been admitted; furthermore, there does not seem to be any similarities between those who have been admitted. I wonder how they're deciding the order of their acceptance call list?

Guys, let's make the wildest conjectures we can from 3 acceptances!! That'd be a fun exercise :lol:

Honestly these one probably fell out of a pile or something and they decided to go ahead and call em' - don't know why there wouldn't be a big wave to start.

The sp00ky enigmatic BU admissions staff strikes again. Story at 11.

I think part of it might just be that a lot of BU applicants don't update TLS or LSN. There's almost no chance that they admitted 2 people on Monday and one person on Tuesday.

is there?

I think anxiety is high everywhere right now. I'm just most anxious here because a yes to my ED app is literally the law school decision maker.

Also I have no patience.
