Admitted to the MBA program as well! :)))

No calls. Just an email. I guess it is normal for international applicants.

However, scholarships are not mentioned in the email. Does it mean that I haven't received any kind of financial support? Or maybe they will send me a separate email with scholarship info?

Congrats to everybody :)

Update:
Admitted with $. Received an email from Kyle (director) who interviewed me.

Background:
An international applicant (Beijing, China), female, WE 10yr+, finance, G710

Applying procedure:
I'm an re-applicant.
2015: Submitted application on Nov 30, received invitation on Dec 1, completed interview (Skype) on Dec 10, received decision (waitlist) on Dec 23.
2016: Submitted application on Nov 30, received invitation on Dec 1, completed interview (in-person) on Dec 6, received decision on Dec 16 (5am, EST+8).

My application procedure is quite dramatic and lucky in 2016. Still submitted my application on the last minute and received the invitation on Dec 1. As an international student and a re-applicant, I traveled to US from Beijing to visit the school and have my interview.
Right after I submitted my application, I took on the flight to US. When I was passing the US Customs at the NY airport, I received my invitation and was told by the admissions coordinator, if I would like to have the interview on campus, I need to do it before Dec 9. So I registered the Skype interview and asked the coordinator to change my invitation to an in-person one. And so lucky that the date I could choose was on one day when I would be in Boston (Dec 4-6).

Interview:
A brief introduction of the interview flow and application review process, then 30 mins interview.
Question:
4-5 mins of your WE. Since I have 10 yr+ WE, so not the general 1 min work thru your resume.
Leadership
Teamwork
Why now, Why Questrom, Why MBA
Big achievement

As a re-applicant:
I think the most important thing is to show how you have improved in the previous year since last application.
Fully understand that people cannot have significant improvement in a year or in several months, but we still need to emphasize such points - those can be illustrate in your re-applicant essay. Eg standard score improvement (my GMAT, from 680 to 710), any promotion in your work (I didn't have any promotion but indicated a few honors and achievement awarded). If your essay impresses the ad officer who reviews your essay, you may get the opportunity to have an interview.

That's all my experience. I scored my interview 80/100, not that perfect but I'm satisfied with the result.

Good luck to you all!

I think this year BU has not been so generous in offering scholarships! Any comments?

Yes, souvilibra, I am an international applicant.

Should I worry about not receiving any info about scholarship in this first email ("Boston University Admissions Decision" from Director Kyle)?

Zv504, you said that you got admitted with scholarship. Did they tell you right away in Kyle's email?

Thank you guys and congratulations again!
