Has anyone who applied for the public interest scholar program heard anything or know when we will hear something?

Anyone with scholarship money - how soon after you were accepted did you find out about their offer? And did you get the offer by snail mail?

I think in most cases, scholarship money comes with the snail mail acceptance packet. (Sounds like there were exceptions, though, like in Veritas' case.) Mine came as a letter in the same envelope as my acceptance letter.

Is this bad news...

I've been complete since 1/13. It seems everyone who has been accepted (via LSN) heard back in around 4 weeks. I'm reaching the 5th tomorrow :(
My stats are VERY borderline. Boo

I received the letter with dean's scholarship - full ride - in the same folder as my acceptance letter.

i don't believe it is technically. seems like BU is aiming for a new LSAT median of 167 and they're strict as always on GPA.

There are still a lot of people who have been complete since September, October and November and have not heard back what so ever. There have been rejections and waitlists so im guessing this isn't a bad thing.

Wow lucky :) Congrats.

So does this mean filling out their fafsa/need access with hopes of getting merit-based is pretty pointless?
