anyone else complete in October (10/24 for me) and not UR yet? Does an email get sent or does it just show up on the status checker?

I never actually went "under review". My status checker just said application complete until I got the acceptance call and then it changed to decision made a few hours later.

Haha i feel ya, BU is the only school I've heard back from so far and I was going crazy before then. It's even worse than waiting on the LSAT. Thank you!

Checked my mail after seeing this and got mine, too. It's a nice packet of information and literature. Mine also included scholarship info.

Awesome, thank you! Looks like I'm going to have my parents open it because I don't want to wait until winter break to find out :D

I'd definitely have my parents open it if they delivered it to their house. I mean, you already know you're in!

I don't have a current status date, but I know the day it went complete (11/15). Can't remember if I ever had a date.


I don't think they ever change it. I went complete around 10/16 and it hasn't updated. I'm pretty sure people in the first wave of acceptances said it didn't change until a few hours after they got their acceptance phone call.

Just got deferred from ED to RD, via email. A bummer but still love the school, hopefully they don't take too long to make a decision on RD, the wait is already rough!

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