I actually thought they were pretty quick. I applied 11/10/10 and went under review at 11/16/10.

I meant that the email with the status checker came pretty quickly. I think I got the email a few days after I applied.

I read on another thread someone's status checker went to their spam folder. Maybe check there if it's been a while?

It took almost a month for me to get the status checker email.

Just checked my spam, nothing. Think I should send an email or wait a few more days?
EDIT: I applied 11/9

That's definitely a little strange. I applied 11/7 and had a status checker e-mail by the 8th and went complete shortly after that. You might as well call them today.

This happened to me at UVA. A quick email cleared it up- my email had imported into their system wrong.

SO I emailed them and said I never received a status checker user name or password. Their email back said "Your file is now complete and it is with the committee". Sooo I just don't get a checker??

Does anyone know when BC will start issuing decisions? I've been under review since mid-Oct, and I'm starting to get antsy...

Also, I couldn't find the BC thread from 09/10... I bet that would help

Well last year BC had the EA program, which they eliminated this year, so I am not sure if the graphs will be much help.

This is the graph from last year: http://www.top-law-schools.com/images/d ... 010/BC.jpg

Looks like early Dec. that a lot of decisions went out, so hopefully we will be finding out something shortly!

Since BC eliminated their EA program, I'm wondering if this means we won't hear back until January or February.

Maybe it caused them to over-enroll their previous class. Does anyone have word as to why BC eliminated their EA program?

I doubt they over-enrolled, since it was non-binding. And I also doubt we'll be waiting until February for a decision. BC knows its competing against BU for applicants, which has already started handing out decisions.
