Also, they never gave me a few waiver so they're the only place I paid full price to apply to. I have a 170/3.59. :|


166/3.55 got fee waiver...

Wait seriously? I only paid full price for BU and Harvard. I was kind of peeved, but also love Boston so figured it was worth it.

167/3.71(at the time) and nothing

I got a 153 the first time on the LSAT so maybe that was why they didn't give me a waiver? Still thought it was kinda weird.

It was a letter about their experiential learning program. :lol:

At least I knew what to expect from you! My roommate texted and told me I got something from BU, but at least my hope didn't get too high.

Has anyone who applied for the Public Interest Scholars program received a decision?

Congratulations--that is beyond exciting!

Now pass your luck on to me! (; I'm in similar circumstances and got WL last year so I'm still holding out hope.

Mine aren't "very strong" but are strong enough that I'm shocked I haven't heard. Complete around the same time.

Same. Went complete late November. I'm from the West Coast and I'm trying to plan a trip out to see BU, but this uncertainty is killing my travel plans.

In as of a week or so ago, 164/3.79. I love the school and have been up to visit; I'm just worried about how much $$ they'll give me, if any. :/ I've got strong offers (full ride at Indiana, $$ at Alabama, $$ nearing full tuition at UGA) so I don't know if I can justify paying anything close to full tuition to go here.

Looking at mylsn, seems like people with your numbers tend to get 70k ish.. I wouldn't feel so discouraged. From what I gather, BU has a solid reputation for being generous

That's good to know!! Thanks! I'll have to wait until their scholarship offers come out before I make a final decision.
