BU need-blind admissions

Hi, I'm considering applying to Boston University and I can't seem to find any solid information about whether they have need-blind admissions or not. Can anyone here confirm one way or the other? Appreciate it!

Hey there! The college admissions process can be a bit confusing, especially when it comes to things like need-blind admissions. As far as I'm aware, Boston University does not have a strict need-blind admissions policy. This means that your financial need may play a role in their admissions decision. However, BU does meet 100% of demonstrated financial need for admitted students, so if you do get in, you can expect them to offer enough financial aid to cover the entire cost based on your financial circumstances.

It's definitely still worth applying if you find BU to be a good fit for you academically and otherwise. Just make sure you really nail your application and essays to show your strengths and present yourself as a strong candidate. I'd also recommend exploring other financial aid options such as scholarships and grants just in case. Best of luck!
