"A decision has been rendered on your application to Boston College Law School by the Admissions Committee. A decision letter will be mailed via U.S. Postal Service within 3-5 days from the Decision Status Date and will be sent to your current address.

Best,

Boston College Law School

Admissions office"

Just appeared on my status checker today.

Should I be expecting a rejection since it's coming via snail mail?

For people who were held, did your status checker change on either "In Review" or "Decision Rendered" before you got a decision? I was placed on hold, but my status checker still says in review from 11/23 and decision rendered from 1/6...

Thanks. I still think I'm out though haha.

161/3.96 + late app (UR 12/6) = waitlist/ding I'm pretty sure.

Appreciate it! Just want to clarify one more time because I'm paranoid. It said you should expect a decision via snail mail in 3-5 days and instead you got an email the same day?

Acceptances generally come via email on the same day as the status checker goes DR, waitlists and rejections come via snail mail. It saying you will be mailed in 3-5 doesn't mean much - they also send admissions packets to those accepted, so everyone is getting something in the mail.

Mine still says "Application Received" 12/9.
That's it. All the little checkmarks are there for what is needed though, I'm not missing anything. WTF.

If you are accepted you should receive an email in the next 24 hours at most (judging by past posts). Everyone, no matter the decision, gets something in the mail. I am in the South and it took nine business days to get to my house after it was mailed so try not to obsess over checking the mail too much.

just got "decision rendered" on status check today but haven't received an e-mail yet

I guess if I don't get an e-mail tomorrow, I'm dead in the water...

anyone NOT get an e-mail within the next 24 hours but still get accepted?

edit: is it also a bad sign that on status check there is no "first deposit" and "second deposit" fees up? That could seem like a backdoor way to knowing your decision...

Thank you for giving me some hope lol .... guess I'll be refreshing my e-mail every 5 minutes on my iPhone during class tomorow

As an aside, why not just put the decision on status checker? I don't understand what BC's rationale could be ... except to force their applicants into an obsessive compulsive state for the next 24 hours / 3-5 days

Er if your profile is your real stats, I REALLY wouldn't worry about the chances of you getting into BC. Your numbers are incredible. Congrats!

Is it weird that I have a message on top of my status checker that says that a decision has been rendered, but then in the "Current Status" section, it says "Your file is under review" with my original UR date?

Either way, it's been 24 hours since that DR message first appeared on my status checker so I'm out.

mine says the same thing:

Your application is being reviewed (date)
Decision rendered (date)

Anyone receive acceptance e-mails today yet? I won't start worrying until after 5 pm, but wondering if anyone's gotten one yet today

Yes, but I'm sure I'm not going, so the $$$ should be going back into the pot.
