Just got my email - in, and still can't believe it (my LSAT is way below the 25th). Never checked my status so can't help people there, but my low LSAT definitely means they look at GPA (pretty good) and soft factors (very good - grad degree, great recommendations, two years corporate experience, two years UNHCR work in African refugee camps, etc.). Thank you BC for not being ONLY about the numbers/LSAT! Still have to weigh money issues, but I love BC!

Does a scholarship amount come with your acceptance letter? Anyone from the 1/24 group receive their letters yet?

Do holds come through snail mail ? Because it looks like that's what I'm hoping for as I went DR today and have nothing under mailings/ no e-mail.

They should, people may argue this but BU is better nationally, although they are the same in Boston.

Congrats guys! :D

I'm still waiting on my DR 12/14. Appears not to be an acceptance, but I wish I knew if it was a ding or a hold or what. If it's a ding, I"m not going to bother with the scholly app... * sigh * International mail sucks.
