Has anyone applied for the PI scholarship? I'm just wondering when we might here back about it. Thoughts?

I'm a 1/6er and I hope to hear from them soon. And I hope that what I hear is GREAT news, not depressing news, lol.


did. they said im still in review and just to wait... then again im a splitter so they usually wait til they see if they need splitters for their LSAT median/75%


+1. Me too. Hopefully they get a glut of high GPA low LSAT'ers and have to bring us in as reinforcements 8)


i like your way of thinking. 8)

my offer was in the acceptance package (received 1wk after acceptance call), and I'm hoping for some additional aid once they review my Need Access app (submitted yesterday)

I did. I'm not sure if I'm in the running since I've already been given some non-PI money. I have no idea when we might hear... make sure to post here if you find out.

For people who have submitted the aid application, how long was the turn around time?

BU application is only at complete (didn't apply too early). Anyone else apply for the JD/LLM - European law program?

I called BU today. The woman told me that they would try to get back to everyone by April, but there were no guarantees...

Seriously? They know seat deposits are due on April 1st for a lot of schools right????

That's what happens when the app deadline is 3/1. I mean... are people seriously still applying. If so, as a school, you'd have to know that it's a last ditch effort (90% of the time) so why even bother?

Come on BU! I'm in limbo here! Pllleaase accept me, lol!

Unfortunately, I'm one of the few still in the application process. It really sucks.

Good luck cherry!

There are more people still in the admissions process than those who are out of it. People who apply in January are really applying mid cycle, not extremely late. Obviously the earlier the better, but I don't think an April 1st deadline on BU's part is extremely unreasonable. I have gotten a bunch of notes from other schools saying it will be by the end of April which is certainly past all Seat Deposit 1 deadlines.

All that said, I do feel like I will be personally responsible for crashing a few status checkers with overzealous logging on and off.

Has anyone else heard from 1 or 2 schools quickly and now is languishing in the abyss of silence? AHHHHH!

I've heard from no one. And I agree that April 1st is not that unreasonable. Some schools even offer refunds under certain circumstances. Plus, you could always ask for one, what do you have to lose? I have a feeling I'll be in that boat in a few months' time.

Thanks for the luck and same to you!

I for one DO think a 4/1 deadline is unfair. Most schools are 4/15 and what if you're on a waitlist to another school? Most first time deposits are nonrefundable. It's really nice if they are, but in my case, for example, it's not. Why can't it just be May 1? That's even better lol.
