Thats pretty far below BU (167/3.7) and they tend to hover around the same.


Strange. I wonder what happened. Maybe they didn't have enough scholly $$ and couldn't matriculate people.

Here's more info: http://www.bc.edu/schools/law/admission/profile.html

This puts the LSAT median at 166.

BC enrolled 266 students, which is actually more than last year, unlike BU which cut its class considerably. A smaller class tends to help you preserve or raise your medians (even if that was not the motivation for the smaller class).

Note the "Students of Color" figure; that's gotta be a typo, right?

They can include a lot of things under persons of color, so it might be accurate.

+1
I think most schools count everything from AA to Asian, Native American, Mid-East, Hispanic of all types. 25% URM would be really high, but not if you include everything that isn't white and of European decent.

No, guys, last year they reported 25%. This year 53%??? I think typo. Prolly meant to say 47% women, 53% men.

That seems really unlikely.

Hopefully the new medians will help me out this cycle.

Where the hell are you even reading that? It does not say that anywhere on 2011-2012.

In the hours since I posted, they fixed the typo to read, Students of Color: 24%. heh, maybe they checked this thread.

i wouldn't be surprised... they still haven't posted 25/75 numbers either, which leads me to believe this cannot be a good sign.

I see that BC Law updated the site so that c/o '14 median is 166.

Interesting - I just e-mailed the admissions office 2 days ago, and they said it was 165. Perhaps that was merely a typo.

Obviously, maintaining the LSAT median while increasing the GPA median and keeping a relatively large class size is quite impressive, considering how things are going for many T1 schools this year. But with UIUC's blunders fresh in my memory, I truly hope there is no foul-play going on here. BC Law's reputation is particularly important to me.

Anybody else notice that Colorado has still got the Class of 2013 numbers up? I know they had a record number of applications last year, just wondering if they were overwhelmingly good or bad or down the middle. Any Buffs out there hear the LSAT numbers for c/o 2014 yet?

Still no 25ths/75ths from GULC? Still nothing official on GW's website? Secrecy in the nation's capital!
