Hey guys,

Does anybody have info?

I've received email from BU School of Law about telephone interview where they ask to appoint a relevant time for phone interview.
So I wonder does it mean that I've 50% admitted and other 50% depend on phone interview?

Please share your expirience. What generally does telephone interview mean? What kind of question they ask?

Hi Emink, if you take a look at the BU website, it states that only promising candidates will be interviewed. Therefore, I think it is a good sign. The interview is relaxed and not very formal. In my case, the questions were about the reasons for obtaining an LLM and why I choose to do so now. My suggestions are just relax and also prepare one or two questions for the interviewer. I was given an answer about a week after the interview. Well, good luck!

Hi you may submit the financial statements after you are admitted. I was admitted to BU law and got USD 10,000 scholarship on Dec. 23, 2009... That's absolutely the most fantastic Christmas gift that I received so far!!

Actually I answered them in my PS. too....maybe they just want to test my speaking through the phone call.

Congrats zywhu. you are very lucky that you received a scholarship. May I ask you about your credentials? Since I received no scholarship, it would be interesting to get an idea about the criterion to receive a scholarship.

To MAB79, it think it is no problem to send your financial statements later. I did not send my statements, I only submitted a letter from my father stating that he will support me and also help me obtain sponsors.

I wish you all good luck on your interviews!

Does anybody knows if BU is a good university for Corporate Law?

I didn't have the opportunity to check the program yet, so I appreciate if someone explain me what is their best LL.M program.

Thanks.

i think its an option between calling them or simply emailing them with three alternative dates and times that they may call you. I reckon its wisest to do both!
