    Im gonna submit my application this week, just waiting on a few reports from school .
    But this waiting period after applying is going to be agonising I feel . Like time till mid December wont just pass by as quick as time has been right now I feel .

    I agree. I'm trying to combat that feeling by completing all of my applications as soon as I can. I might have to take up a new hobby or sport after that to help pass the time. Or maybe I should focus on my senior year classes.. either way. Good luck to all

    The bottom line is ED gives you your best chance for admittance. If you have very high grades and think you will be admitted, you can go EA, but remember stats for admitted freshmen last year was 22% with an average SAT of 1468 and a 32 ACT. They have a lower acceptance rate than most schools in the area including BC and Northeastern. Just understand that BU is just getting more and more competetive. If you check CGS, you have a greater chance of being accepted but the program is completely rigid during the first two years. You have to take classes like American History and the like. Some kids are miserable in CGS because they say it’s like high school, some are not unhappy. Just make sure you understand what CGS entails. If all you want to do is go to BU, it’s an option if your grades are on the bubble. Also, the CGS program has been cut down significantly from prior years. Good luck.
