Your...former pocket?


Lol, no, my ex-boyfriend was pocket dialing me.


OH.

I'm a moron. I think that means my brain is officially fried.

:lol: It's ok, I probably should have hyphenated pocket-dialing to make it more clear.

When did you go complete? I have similar stats and went complete 11/05, but still haven't heard from them.

Ok, so is it just me or are they doing the high gpas right now? Have there been any lower GPA acceptances? And by lower, I mean, <3.5.

Yeah, as a splitter I'm kind of shook by the acceptances to date. Starting to think a WL is headed my direction.

I've noticed the same. As a splitter, I hope they start letting us in. Having said that, both Boston and BC seem partial to high GPAs, so perhaps the trend will continue.

I have a 3.45/168 and got the call last night. I'm one of the lowest GPAs on their LSN graph right now.

I'm kind of confused with BU's acceptance tactics atm (basically no 170+ acceptances). I just really want to hear from them, they're pretty much my first choice seeing as the majority of applicants with or around my numbers got full rides last year.

Yeah, I don't see anyone with a score higher than 168 (save for the one URM w/170 but that's a different story).

Congrats to everyone who's gotten a call so far! I'm really hoping that I get some good news today (or soon...) - went complete at the beginning of November and juuust below their medians (on both), so I'm getting nervous. But all the best for everyone waiting!

Well, maybe they're getting a nice base of solid GPAs first, and then they'll let us lsat splitters in later? Sigh, I want to know now!!!!

So, for those of you who hand't gotten a complete e-mail........
I called admissions, gave them my name/LSAC #, the lady looked me up, and in a few seconds she gave me my information (submitted 11/12, Complete and UR 11/24).
I think this is probably easier than writing an email and waiting for a response.

Well we'll know today - they are up to my complete date range making calls today, and I'm a splitter with a 168, so if they'd consider a true splitter at this point, I might hear...

To those who have heard today: are you on the east coast? I'm also wondering if they're going alphabetically in which case I'm going to be late in the day if anything.

I was complete 11/18. Has anyone been called with that late of a completion date?

you probably have some nice $$$ coming, but they might be waiting to see if you get into a T14 early and then withdraw from BU

I keep looking at the BU LSN graph, staring at the empty spot where I would fit so perfectly, snuggled in amongst the other little green dots. :cry:

Me too. I really would like to go there because it's in Boston, and I don't think that Harvard will bite.

so with stats as sorry as mine, should I rejoice in hearing nothing at all rather than straight out reject? (< 3.0; 160< MY SCORE < 163)
