For anyone applying to BU, has BU requested you LSDAS report yet?  Just curious whether they've even begun the process.  I transmitted a long time ago.  If they have, then I'll give them a shout.

cheers,
Rishi

nope, and I called to ask if it was complete.  They said No because of my stupid dean's cert form.  So, you can call.

There's a post on the main LS Applications board...it took BU a little more than 2 weeks to request my report, and others seem to be having the same problem. I think they only request reports on certain days, so it would definitely take more than 1-2 days if you submitted your application right after they requested reports. I could be wrong, but that's just what it seems like.

BU took forever to request my report, don't sweat it.

Still haven't requested mine but it was submitted on 11/12.  On the other hand, my app to BC, submitted on 11/5 is already complete.  Just received the e-mail this morning.

My law school report for BU was processed by LSAC on 11/03 - BU finally requested it today 11/17.  Don't sweat it.  They tend to take a little time.

I completed my app (+transmitted it) on 11/05, but they haven't requested my report yet.  Oh, well.  It's a bigger reach for me than even Boalt, so I'm not sitting on the edge of my seat or anything.

Now if only San Diego would request my report, or Northeastern would update me and let me known if I made EA, that'd make me happier.

Thanks...I guess I'll give it a coupla more days.

Matokah, why is BU a bigger reach than Boalt?  I'm just curious.

Guptroop: Basically I'm just going off of their LSAT/GPA grid from last year.  At BU, I have a 4% chance; at Boalt, I have a 14% chance.  I think it's because Boalt puts more weight on GPA.  I personally think BU will laugh at me, a non-URM with a 156 applying for admission.  Oh well.  You don't get in if you don't try, right? :)

My feelings exactly, which is why I'm applying to <insert Top Tier Law School here>.   ;)
