Good luck!

Have your found out your BC decision yet? I was feeling pretty confident when I applied (Admit on LSP), but their recent WLing of really great candidates has me expecting a similar fate. I guess I'd be kinda surprised if I got in.

GUYS

BC said decision rendered and said it has been mailed... does that mean I was WL'ed or Regretted.... or does it mean anything???

It doesn't mean anything positive or negative unless you don't get the congrats email within a day or so (at least according to the majority of peoples' experiences ITT), then it's WL or ding. Good luck!!!

Phils sorry to hear that :(

Okay so let me say this a different way :) you will either receive an acceptance email within a day or so of today (and then an acceptance packet within the following week) or you won't see the acceptance email and can most likely then expect a WL/ding via regular mail. I don't know if a decision is necessarily mailed out on the same day, but it must be mailed within a few days based on how long it's taken people to receive them.

Thanks! You don't think that was BU perhaps?

EDIT: Oh, saw you're from MA. 617 area codes are probably a little more common for you.

I'm still waiting for my decision that was mailed last week (no admit email...)
considering I managed to make it onto BU's waitlist I'm assuming there's a good chance I'm on BC's as well...still seems like it's taking awhile for the letter to get from Boston to Waterville...

Oh well...

GaH! this is torture. I have gotten three BC alumni emails in the past three days. Don't they know I am eagerly awaiting word from the law school and that they crush my dreams every time they send me something?!?!?!

Finally able to check my mail to find a ding email from BC. Not what I expected. Figured my 167 would land me on the WL. On WL at BU, though.

Good luck, all!

I am currently waiting for a WL/ding mail (I thought this came via snail mail....you got it email?)....I'm hoping for a WL (also a 167), but I think I may be headed for a rejection...we shall see

Oh OK...makes sense now. At least you got WL at BU, that's not a bad consolation prize.

If we are waitlisted, does that also come via snail mail?
