i just called the und. office and they told me that they would be sending e-mails today and tomorrow. does anyone already know they're in? anyone got this email already? thanks..

By Gum (Gum) on Monday, March 10, 2003 - 07:25 pm: Edit

also.. my parents received mail from BU talking about the und. program. does this mean anything?

By Momx3 (Momx3) on Monday, March 10, 2003 - 07:54 pm: Edit

This whole process is confusing. I recieved an e-mail from BU admissions office on friday that said they will begin mailing on March 20th and continue through April 15th. "We do not give decisions via phone or e-mail" Quote!!!!!

By Gum (Gum) on Monday, March 10, 2003 - 08:38 pm: Edit

that's so weird.. i called today though. lets see if we get something tomorrow (because thats what they said they were gonna do) if not.. on wednesday im gonna write an email and see what i get.

By Momx3 (Momx3) on Monday, March 10, 2003 - 10:15 pm: Edit

American e-mailed acceptances today.

By Gum (Gum) on Tuesday, March 11, 2003 - 12:47 pm: Edit

yes, i received an acceptance letter:)!!!

By Aznvip (Aznvip) on Tuesday, March 11, 2003 - 02:49 pm: Edit

WOW, congrats. I just called them up and they said they would be sent out from march 15th to april 15th. Did you apply to RD?

By Gum (Gum) on Tuesday, March 11, 2003 - 03:10 pm: Edit

yes, i did.. thats so weird.. i talked to them yesterday and they told me about sending e-mails today :(. i was so nervous checking my mail the whole day today.i hope they send decisions by e-mail since im from bolivia and the mail would take forever to get here. thanks for telling us though..

By Momx3 (Momx3) on Tuesday, March 11, 2003 - 03:52 pm: Edit

e-mails to international applicants and mailings from the 20th to US residents applying to BU. I called to clarify.

By Gum (Gum) on Tuesday, March 11, 2003 - 03:56 pm: Edit

By Louisa (Louisa) on Wednesday, March 12, 2003 - 09:22 am: Edit

I'm confused gum... You wrote above that you got an acceptance letter from BU....... yeah you have a chance (if you haven't gotten in already...)

By Gum (Gum) on Wednesday, March 12, 2003 - 10:07 am: Edit

its weird, some people say that we will get emails by the 15th, others the 20th.. im going crazy here..

By Gum (Gum) on Thursday, March 13, 2003 - 04:30 pm: Edit

By Momx3 (Momx3) on Saturday, March 15, 2003 - 09:19 am: Edit

Gum, it doesn't mean anything if you haven't heard yet. Wait until you hear one way or another.

By Gum (Gum) on Tuesday, March 18, 2003 - 03:17 pm: Edit

so anyone got anything yet?!?! im still waiting :s

By Momx3 (Momx3) on Tuesday, March 18, 2003 - 07:27 pm: Edit

No one is going to hear until Friday at leastand maybe not until mid April. So relax.

I'm so sorry for the double post, I don't know what happened.

By Dwaynehoover (Dwaynehoover) on Wednesday, March 19, 2003 - 09:16 am: Edit

why dont u post the link for the decisions so everybody can check? :)

By Momx3 (Momx3) on Wednesday, March 19, 2003 - 02:10 pm: Edit

There is an application status check on the BU site, but I was told that they would not post domestic decisions online or by e-mail, but we still check the site every day!!!

By Gum (Gum) on Wednesday, March 19, 2003 - 03:04 pm: Edit

i live overseas too.. so thats why i dont think i got in.. ill still wait til tomorrow.. and yeah, send the link

By Kacey9290 (Kacey9290) on Friday, March 21, 2003 - 03:12 am: Edit

The link is different for each person - we all have diff ID numbers. How about this, I'll just paste the letter I got here, but the link doesn't work anymore, since I've already went there and changed my password.

I got in. My stats will give hope to to anyone applying. 1140 SAT I, no SAT II's, rank 40 of 120, and GPA of 3.13!, I am humbled.... Congrats on all accepted.

By Icee (Icee) on Saturday, March 22, 2003 - 01:29 pm: Edit

Igotpants...

Wow, good job! Their SAT averages from 1240-1380, eh?

I wasn't sure if I would get in either, but I did :) My stats are: 1200 SAT, 27 ACT, rank 4/248, 3.979 GPA, 297/300 TOEFL. I also have a bunch of other stuff... perhaps that helped.

Congrats to everyone who got accepted!

By Gum (Gum) on Saturday, March 22, 2003 - 01:46 pm: Edit

OMG.. for real??Q?! when did you get the acceptance letter? i havent heard anything from them yet. i have 1200 sat and 3.5 gpa. im so worried.. :(

By Momx3 (Momx3) on Saturday, March 22, 2003 - 04:45 pm: Edit

Gum, I suggest you call or e-mail admissions, tell them where you live and ask when you can expect to hear?. At least you will not be so anxious

Icee... ty for the compliment, congrats to you and those stats, you are much more qualified than me :). Like I said above, I am humbled, I've been expecting a thin envelope for the last few months... but anyways, to answer Gum's question I recieved the acceptance packet today.

By Gum (Gum) on Saturday, March 22, 2003 - 06:40 pm: Edit

ok thanks igotpants :) and momx3.. i'm gonna have to call monday for sure.. did you get anything yet? (i wrote and they never answered back)

By Icee (Icee) on Saturday, March 22, 2003 - 08:37 pm: Edit

igotpants...

I'm glad they looked beyond the test scores!

By Gum (Gum) on Monday, March 24, 2003 - 04:43 pm: Edit

By Gum (Gum) on Thursday, March 27, 2003 - 04:32 pm: Edit

i got wait listed to BU and tufts.. but got accepted to BC!!!.. this is so weird.. (about BU) NOT FAIR!

By Igotpants (Igotpants) on Thursday, March 27, 2003 - 06:25 pm: Edit

Congratulations Gum on your acceptance to BC. I got waitlisted at two other colleges as well... but I don't really stress, I got into my first choice anyway :)

By Gum (Gum) on Thursday, March 27, 2003 - 07:15 pm: Edit

thanks!! youre so lucky you got in BU. i wonder why i didnt.. it seems like everyone got in but me.

By Icee (Icee) on Friday, March 28, 2003 - 02:09 pm: Edit

Gum..

College acceptances are very random. Last time I checked, BC has a lower acceptance rate than BU ;) Congrats on your acceptance!

By Gum (Gum) on Friday, March 28, 2003 - 04:38 pm: Edit

thanks icee thats very sweet. by the way, congrats to all that got in BU and any other schools you wanted to go! isnt it a relief to actually have somewere to go now? congrats to all and good luck!!
