Congrats!

I've been complete since the first week of November. BU is one of my top choices so these weekdays are dragging...

I went complete 10/14 and I have heard nothing yet. Should I be worried? Stats 165/3.65

I don't want to ruin your dreams, but your numbers are low compared to people who have already been notified, at least according to LSN. I think that you will might be deferred/waitlisted, and then maybe they'll accept you. (we have the same LSAT and your GPA is higher than mine, so I'm really not trying to make you feel bad- just being honest and hoping for the best.)

look at my stats (non-urm) and BU's medians - whether you hear now or in march, you know you're in.

Dude, you also were accepted to Fordham and everyone else was waitlisted with stats even close to yours. No offense, but you seem to be sort of a special case. :D

not really, my acceptances just illustrate that law school administrators are not as numerically tunnel-visioned as they're made out to be on law school forum threads.

Question for those of you accepted to BU? Did your scholarship (if received) come with your initial acceptance letter or did it come later? Noticed on LSN that a few people have received notification, I received my acceptance packet today with no scholarship notice and wanted to know if I should lose hope now or hold for a few days to see if anything else hits. Anyone?

BU also does financial aid/scholarship mix in January. Just wait.

got my admissions packet today, including some BU post-its that unfortunately got soaked by the rain.

I think I will be withdrawing though, since I also got into NYU today...

Is it bad if I've applied to BU around a month ago and have received nothing from the school at all? Should I contact the admissions office? Thanks.

It seems like most people who applied Regular Decision haven't been notified that their files are complete yet. I applied about a month ago too, and I emailed them 2 weeks after submitting to ask about it, because they stated somewhere to wait 2 weeks before contacting them. They got back to me in 24 hours, telling me I was complete. So you're probably fine- they are just busy with the early application folks- but I don't think it would be a bad idea to send them an email.

I also applied about a month ago and got the completion notification just recently. I don't expect to hear from them for a while longer.

Congrats everyone who's been accepted so far! I've got my fingers crossed for everyone else. If you want some input from a BUSL 1L, feel free to message me. :)

+1. I think the letter says we have to apply for both merit and need based?

It only said you have to apply for need-based aid. I called about merit aid and the woman said we would receive separate letters about that arriving not too long after acceptance packets.
