Has BU shown any love for Splitters this cycle yet? I'm starting to lose hope.

(3.2, 171, complete 10/29 and not a peep)

Looks like nobody with an LSAT as high as yours has heard yet, at least not on the small LSN population. 171, 3.2 looks like a probable waitlist, judging from last year's LSN graph.

Seconded? And any speculation on when BU will get to 170+ numbers?

Yeah- that wall of green triangles at the 168 mark is kind of chilling for some reason. (on the lsn graph)

Unless for some reason BU is your first choice (and even then) you are on the good side of the wall. If BU is your first choice, I'll swap scores with you. :wink:

Believe me, honey, the wall is scarier from the 165 side. :)

It's not my first choice, but with a big scholarship, it could sway me away from other places that I've gotten in to.

+1. I didn't recognize you at first. And I still think of you as Butters. You could always try Professor Chaos!

To those who have been accepted did you receive scholarship info with the acceptance packet or does that come later?

With your LSAC # I could send an anonymous email encouraging them to check out this thread to see that they need not be scared of your 170+ LSAT score.

I just read a few pages back, and it seems like a lot of people who got this round of acceptances didn't have scholarship offers in the packet. One person said that BU would send them a week or so later, after the packet.

I got mine during the first wave before Thanksgiving, so they may have changed how they do it for later acceptances.

Congrats though!

I'm not liking the gpa wall - the same one they had last year - doesn't look like there's any splitter love, even with my 168 right in their sweet zone

Thanks, and congrats to you too! Heres hoping scholarship info comes in the mail, I love BU but need that cash!

Oh you mean their "if you have below a 3.5 you're screwed" wall? Out of every school I'm applying to, BU seems to be acting the most numbers-centric. But hey, LSN is just a tiny sample of applicants, so maybe it's just a weird fluke.

Really? I got BU post-its, a campus map, preview day information, the alumni magazine... That packet was STUFFED TO THE BRIM with BU paraphernalia!
