You'll be accepted with money, I would say. 10% of BU students are offered merit aid. There's a separate application for the Trustee scholarship and I think it's due Dec. 1. Check the BU website.

Well, you know you're obviously in, if that makes you feel better. You'll get some Merit aid most likely, and need based according to your family income. So in other words you'll go for free.
