I was under the impression that BC was one of those schools that don't negotiate. Damn... I'd better give this a shot before the deadline rolls up.

Asked for more money and after a kind of awkward negotiation where I was initially denied, they relented and made me an offer I couldn't refuse (thanks Kimberly!) BC wasn't my initial plan (wasn't even in the picture) but oh well... something recently made me realize how lucky I am and now I'm really excited, can't wait

My request for financial aid in the form of grants/scholarships has been rejected. Medianish for GPA and LSAT.

Is BC unpredictable/ungenerous with aid? i understand why I wouldn't get much aid, but I have a friend with a 3.4 169 who was similarly denied.

I'm with you. Depressed about leaving NYC especially for cold boston. Although housing pricing be similar in term of 1 BR apartments. No roomies, I had too many lunatic roommates in college. I went through 5 in 4 years. Yeah 5. Okay so maybe the problem might have been me :lol:

In their respective regions, yeah, there's not going to be any substantial difference in how they place. In fact, in their respective primary markets BC will fare better than ND (which is to say, BC will place better in Boston than ND will in Chicago). Now, in terms of national reach, neither is very strong but ND might fare a little better than BC because of its name and alumni network. I know ND has the name and the higher ranking, but its really not enough to give it any clear advantage over BC imo. FWIW, I picked BC over ND because of its location and additional scholarship money. If you want to work in the midwest, go to ND. If you want to work on the East Coast, go to BC. If you don't know, or if your goal is a place like NYC where either school could get you there assuming you have the (very good) grades, then just go with your personal preference.

so how are people going about finding housing. Any tips? I haven't found the BC housing site very useful. Are people planning on going to the housing fair to find housing/roommates?

I wish I was going to BC so I could kick it to kiwislug.

Also, I could continue my three-way bromance with theskippa and Amplified...
