There's also a direct route on the BC shuttle from the Cleveland Circle area to the law school campus. Lots of people take that.

Does anyone know where most students live?

Alston, Brighton, and Brookline are probably the most popular, though some live in Cambridge, downtown Boston, out in the western suburbs a bit, in Newton itself, etc.

I wish I didn't look at status checkers and just let the mail come. Now I'm going to be seriously stressing about it.

Why don't they just e-mail us. :(

+1 still UR. I don't know how to feel about this. I feel this relief as well as slight nausea everytime I check my status.

I think they seem to be emailing only the accepted students. This is VERY depressing because if you don't get that "video message" you KNOW you haven't been accepted. :cry: :cry:

Under Review as of 11/30...guess I'll have to wait a while! A BU acceptance would be nice in the mean time :-)

I'm totally fine with waiting it out. It hopefully means I didn't get the auto-ding.

Just got the ding in the mail. Cannot believe they knew this last Friday and made us wait this long instead of just sending an e-mail.

I think they're worried that a ding via e-mail would seem cold and impersonal.

Although I agree with you, if I'm getting dinged, I'd rather just hear about it ASAP via e-mail.

Decision rendered 12/10!!! I don't know whether that makes me happy or sad. The people who were accepted got the email the day after their status change. If they wait to send emails until Monday that means I have to be paranoid all weekend about whether I haven't heard anything because it's bad news or if it's because the office is just closed. What are the numbers of people who changed today? Likely admits or rejections?

my thoughts exactly about the weekend thing- so stressful. This cycle is totally getting in the way of studying for finals. FWIW, My numbers are decent for BC: 167/3.7 but you never know...

The problem really is the video thing. Everyone accepted thus far with Decision Rendered on the status checker also had the video message.
