Wow, look me up on LSN, I am no auto-admit but I had strong softs and overcame very unusual circumstances (I'm serious about this one, it's personal so I don't want to write about it here). Also, I took twice as many classes my senior year of school (we run a quarter system). That year I took 15 classes, and finished top 3 in every class 4.0's, a perfect year...so I'm glad BU saw past my 3.33 lsdas gpa (which includes community college classes D's and C's, which I took during high school). Anyways, don't give up hope and write great softs. I don't want to sound like a dbag but I was the first to get contacted by e-mail...even before TooHot4tls and the others...about a month ago. I'm non-trad, I've been out of school and working for 2 years now, they wanted more information. I got a call and a voicemail from them yesterday...only to confirm receipt of my additional softs they had requested earlier. Then today...I've been partying...got into WUSTL w/scholly consideration...found out last night via e-mail...woke up 3:30pm...voicemail and call left at 11:11am PT, so 2:11pm ET.

VERITAS WE DID IT!!!


Awesome! You give me hope! Congratulations. Sounds like you definitely earned it! :)

Damn. My hat is off to you, friend. One year, fifteen classes. Hope that you have a splendid holiday!



Thank you soo much. I'm sure you will get in with your numbers, you have a stronger application and I'm sure you are going to get the phone call. I applied really early (took the June LSAT's) and so I've been getting early responses. Best of Luck =).

YOU GOT IN TO HARVARD!! NYU!!! UCLA!!! GULC!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

just kidding- that was me trying to lynch you :)

Since there is no status checker, I don't think anyone knows when they went under review.

Thanks everyone. I'm glad I can give hope to people that think BU is a reach for them because my GPA according to LSN would've had me rejected/waitlisted last year. Send in ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, even if they don't ask for it...if you think it can help. Really, I realized I should mention this 15 class excerpt I wrote here and send it to USC/UCLA tomorrow. I live right next to those two schools, so I will write something up tonight and drop it off to them personally. The additional information and contact with Boston's AMAZING/PROMPT/COURTEOUS admissions committee really helped put me over the top. Here's to hoping for the best, softs do matter, don't lose hope guys =).

:oops: ok I don't hate, I'm just very allergic. So, since I can't cuddle with them I pretend to dislike them, it lessens the pain.

I also am terribly allergic, which makes them a forbidden pleasure. But e-cats and e-kittens are delightful!

Ahh, what's a little allergy between cute, cuddly friends?

I actually discovered that I might be allergic to cats after hating cats all my life and then being persuaded to adopt one and then taking his sister when my roommate didn't want her. So now I have two and sneeze a lot. But I've discovered cats are actually kinda cool and I work through the pain.

If only it were that easy. I have natural breathing problems anyway, and cat allergies would exacerbate them enough to send me to the hospital if I spend a whole day with them. But a quick cuddle of my relatives' cats is fine.

if only it was a "little" allergy.

One time a cat just touched my hand with its paw, and I got a red puff on my hand in the shape of a cat paw!!!!

I'm also allergic to penicillin, pollen, ducks and raw squash.

I'm also allergic to penicillin (+ other antibiotics), pollen of all types, hay, cut grass, eggs, some shellfish, garlic, and pepper. But nuts are fine! I heart peanut butter and eat it all the time.

Oh, well, I guess if it endangers your ability to breathe properly, then its understandable. And maybe its for the better since you're a future law student. Mine have an incredibly annoying habit of climbing onto the desk to lay on any open textbook I happen to be reading.
