Took mine a little over a week, but that was also over the course of Thanksgiving.

I apologize for my pessimism but do you guys think that those "decision rendered" on 12/14/11 are a combination of rejection and hold letters? (just using my lsat score to make a conjecture)

I'm hoping so. It would be sad if it was just all rejections.

I went complete over a month ago and have yet to go under review. There doesn't seem to be a pattern here (based upon my thirty second review of the other responses).

I got it today, about a 6 hour drive from Boston. I'm still at school but my grandma said it was just an acceptance letter and a catalog.

Nah I think "decision rendered" still means accepted at this point.

Yeah...if you look at my numbers (while I have many softs, I'm still not a URM, which is probably the only way I could get in to BC) one can assume that the batch I was in (decision rendered 12/14) were the holds/rejects. I will let you know otherwise, but this was a very long shot/my dad saying no no, apply, I'll pay for it (the fee, not the education...wouldn't that be nice though)!
