omg whos going to admit day on march 22
anybody else have BU go to the top of lawhub today?
But I don't have double complete..
11:26
what is lawhub?
11:26
And why does it matter if a school jumps to the top? I am uneducated.
all my fellow fall applicants who have not received a decision yet, I sent an LOCI last Friday and just got the admit call today! Highly recommend sending that LOCI
12:48
Were you WL? or no decision had been made?
No decision had been made and I applied like early october
EnviousFineGerbil
22:35
should we send a LOCI before we get a decision?
EnviousFineGerbil
22:35
I thought you were uspposed to do it after?
Blurb at the top of my applicant portal disappeared today, yet my application still says complete — has anyone who has already receive a decision had this happen to them?
EnviousFineGerbil
16:08
does anyone who was admitted or WL to BU have the word "null" in the biography section of their application portal
8888887777776t6t
17:38
@EnviousFineGerbil: Yes. I have that on I think all of my status checkers.
EnviousFineGerbil
18:01
@8888887777776t6t: on only the schools you were waitlisted at or even ones where you were excepted?
8888887777776t6t
23:38
All of them.
@EnviousFineGerbil: for the LOCI, it depends on the school. I called and asked if BU accepts LOCI from applicants w/o decisions and they said yes, so I wrote one and sent it in
I think it definitely depends on the timing though bc I was coming up on 5 months of waiting for them, so I think something telling them I was still interested was warranted
15:07
Who did you send the LOCI to?
Admissions office: bulawadm@bu.edu
