Splitter but way above 75th LSAT, hair below 25th GPA. Complete in October. MyLSN had me at 100% which I am increasingly sure is going to be inaccurate.

Literally same, Im also above 75th lsat and 25 GPA 50, and submitted early November, so I thought it would be pretty likely... I'm trying to decide if a "Why BU" would be helpful in any sort of movement on my app one way or the other. Did you write one?

No, which I am coming to regret. I'd have to be offered quite a bit of money to go there though, don't think I'll add one at this point.

They seem to be very GPA picky this cycle. I was at the 50th for GPA and below the 25th for LSAT and I was accepted relatively quickly. When I look at LSN they seem to be waitlisting/rejecting people with strong LSATs but lower than 50th GPAs.

Agreed. I submitted as a BU Bound applicant so I’m not sure how that came into play, but I have a 3.96 and a 157 and I’m in!

Hi everyone!
Hope your cycles are going well. Has anyone here applied for the BU public interest scholarship? I only know a couple others who applied and I'd love to know if anyone has heard anything back. I've had radio silence in terms of the scholarship, so the waiting game is killing me haha.

Haven't heard anything either, although I recently found a GLARING typeo in my essay so I'm not optimistic at all.

I am sure they will overlook a single typo, it happens all the time. Don't count yourself out!!

I had a bad typo in my personal statement and was still named a Dean's Scholar. You'll be fine!!

Anyone know how long it takes to get scholarship info after admittance notification? Do they notify you about the PI scholarship after admittance?

So as far as I know, everyone hears about the PI scholarship. Typically, at least from the few people i've talked to, they got a rejection from the PI scholarship, and notified of their merit aid award at the same time.

Checking in: went complete 1/10, so it'll likely be another week or so for me. Commence small-stress-panic ball form.

Anyone able to explain merit vs alumni (need-based) scholarships?

Are they awarded at different points in the cycle?

fyi: was awarded merit but curious if there will be additional aid distributed after the 3/1 need-based aid deadline

In with mid January app as a splitter at way below 25 GPA and 75 LSAT.

Still holding out for something either better or closer to home so that's one more spot on the waitlist you can count on!
