I was accepted in November and recieved 45000 over three years in the mail mid January out of nowhere. So no, I does not need to be in your acceptance packet.

No scholarship offer, though. Has anyone else gotten $$$ offered with initial package?


+1 and a Bump


Similar stats and I didnt get an offer with my acceptance. FWIW, It says on BU's TLS page that they often come a week after the acceptance.

Or they come in March. Don't lose hope, they do mixed merit/need-based later on. Chillllll everyone. I got in before Thanksgiving, got a half scholly in Feb. It happens.

Alright. I submitted my application in November after getting a 166 on the September LSAT. Because I decided to retake in December they chose to hold my application pending the results of that administration. I got a 171 on the December LSAT, and BU STILL hasn't gotten back to me. What are they doing??????

Did you show any interest in the school? Because you should have no problem getting in unless they think theres absolutely no chance that you would go there.

They told me today, " In most cases, we include merit scholarship information with a student’s admissions packet. "

Rejected today via snail mail. Though expected, it still isn't fun to find that thin envelope in the mail.

I am relatively confident if you call and explain the situation that you could not have BU as a viable option at sticker, but with the recent information on scholarship money, changed things in a positive way. The only issue is whether or not you would seriously consider going...

Veritas, did they at least call you about your admittance? If not, that's really weird to wait so long for a letter to come to you.

I told you guys! Be patient!!!! You may be able to un-withdraw. A classmate of mine un-withdrew about 3 weeks before classes started due to personal reasons, and they let him in.
