    Nope, I also called them and was given the same line, although someone else posted that they called and got an invite a few days later.

    I just called again, and they said they'd "put a note in my folder" :rolleyes: about the date that I was going to be in town for another interview.

    Hey Dr. Don.....

    I wouldn't get discouraged just yet. I called BU on Jan. 28, and they told me that my application was complete, though no decision had been made yet (by the way, I was complete at the end of like AUGUST or some date ridiculously far in the past). The woman on the phone also told me that she'd bring my phone call to the attention of the admissions committee. February 2, I received an interview invitation from them.

    I'd say that it's good that you called, because it shows that you're still interested, and they get so many applications that it's probably hard to weed out those who are truly interested and those who are just using the school as a backup.

    Best of luck to you, and I hope you hear good news soon! :)

    I know how you feel. I think Boston took my $100 and ran with it too. I get the feeling that every school that charges more than $65 is scamming its applicants.

    I was reading the BU website last night and it said that for any applicants that have not heard from them by March 1st (since completion) should contact their admissions office.

    From the way things are looking, I am afraid that I have wasted my $100 too. Darn it! I really wanted to go to this school also.

    I'm so glad I "donated" $100 to BU--for that fee they could at least let us hear something in a reasonable amount of time!
    :(

    With all that money from us, you would figure that would have friendlier people answering phones!
