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.

I hope so, but it's pretty striking...

They may dip to 3.4, especially for your LSAT - but below that is as likely as cats joining a swim team.

Same. The post-it notes are a cute touch.


what? i didnt get any post-it notes, just a generic "great fit for BU" message =( haha, im glad im in regardless. has anyone been on the accepted students site yet and is there anything of interest beyond what can be found on the general school website?


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!


OH. hahaha, im such a dumbass. yeah i got those post-its and campus map and stuff - i thought people got post-it notes with specific stuff written on them on their acceptance letters from the admissions counselors.
