Congrats! A 4.0 GPA is nothing to sneeze at, no wonder they want to snap you up!

Thank you!

which ED program did you apply through? I went complete under BU Bound around the end of October and haven't heard anything :shock:

Anyone else accepted via phone call on 11/27 but still hasn’t gotten their admission packet in the mail yet? I’m on the east coast so can’t figure out what would be taking so long

Same, haven’t received mine yet. But I’m in middle America in a small sized college town so I expected the delay.

Hoping I get a call today. Completed 10/26 and nothing yet. 167, 3.23 so maybe they take longer with splitters?

I'm pretty sure that's just par for the course. I've never had a status date I don't think.

Accepted today! Rollover candidate from ED to RD, so keep an eye on your voicemail, fellow ED applicants. 167/ 3.7, non-URM.
No mention of scholarships in the voicemail, is that normal even if they are sending one in your admissions packet? Or would they say something on the call if you were?

Congrats! I seem to remember this was the case last year as well - a bunch of people got rolled over from ED to RD and then accepted a couple of days later.

Congrats! And yes, they send the scholarship info with the packet. My phone call didn't talk about a scholarship at all but it was in the packet.

Seems like we should hear something. They've been pretty consistent every week although last week was sporadic and didn't seem to be nearly as many people as the wave on 11/27...
