Just got a 60K scholarship package via email. BC is back in the running! I was accepted about a month ago I think and sent an email regarding financial aid two weeks ago that wasn't responded too.

How are they standing in comparison to your other acceptances?

Same here---and with NYC goals, Fordham and BU WL, and Emory and Cardozo acceptances it is screwing with my stress levels.

IN via e-mail!

I was so surprised to get the e-mail becuase I was DR on 1/18

and got NOTHING, no mail, no e-mail. until 2/23.

My status checker didn't change at all since 1/18 until 2/23.

I called and even e-mailed to make sure the video message was not a mistake.

It turns out that I was put on HOLD on 1/18, but the snail mail didn't even get to me yet.

Thank God BC accepted me..and I had nothing under the mailings!

Dinged this afternoon. Have to say this is the one surprising result on my cycle.
Complete 12/9
169/3.5

I have a bad feeling about BU too though, so maybe Boston in general doesn't like me. Oh well.

DR today... Kind of worried. I know I made a small mistake on my app. But BC is the last school I need to hear from, so it will be a relief to know either way.

169/3.7, complete mid-December.

Just got accepted via e-mail! Seriously afraid there might have been a mistake (161, 3.61, non-URM)---definitely wasn't expecting to get in...pretty stoked/confused!

Thanks rocky :) the BOS schools rank pretty highly compared to my other acceptances, though if I don't get any $ they'll be hard to justify, boo. I'm visiting BOS at the end of this month, and I can't wait!
