It seems like kind of bad timing to send out an email like that when everyone is still waiting anxiously! C'mon BC! Give me love!

Very tempting though. Why would they allow you to apply before you get accepted? Thats just more apps to look through that may end up being useless if the person is rejected.

Full tuition. Niceee!

I know, right? They are making more work for themselves, but whatever.

I received the email too, but I got it on a different email account than I put in my BC app, so I think they just sent it out to all applicants. boo

Got the email too, and I just put a hold on my BC application yesterday morning until my December score. Definitely to all emails in their system.

Does anyone know how competitive the scholarship is?

I'm kind of annoyed that they sent it out to everyone because I was planning on applying lol. I have a pretty public interest heavy background and I sincerely want to practice PI law after I graduate.

No idea how competitive it is, but I won't be applying. You sound like a good candidate though, good luck!

Ouch :(
Sorry to all those who were dinged today. I'm sure you will all get into great schools.

BC's pattern of acceptances/dings/WL/holds seems odd. It appears as though dings go out all on one day and then the acceptances/WL/holds go out on a different day?

Or am I way off base?

No they seem to send out a mixed batch of decisions. Makes it impossible to predict what will happen.

Er, did you get an acknowledgement of application receipt?

Did you check your spam?

I'd call BC on Monday if I were you. :(

well, I sent them an email on 11/23 and informed them I had not received a status checker and I was wondering if everything was ok and complete. The response was just like "Thank you for your email. Your file is now complete and in with the committee." So I guess I went complete and UR sometime between 11/9- 11/23. I don't wanna bother them, but maybe I should call.

1. Checked your spam folder
2. Check your other emails and its spam folders?

Do this.

Honestly, I don't think it would be a bother to them if you called, AFTER you check your spam filter.

yup, checked both my emails and their spam folders. I'm kinda pissed the email I got back from them after I asked about my status checker didn't reference my status checker at all. I'll give them a call Monday. Thanks!
