In at UVA...super confused. :shock:

Pretty weird. You'd think being Catholic would be a boost at BC. :/


Right? These people are so inspiring me to hop the fence and go Protestant.


Why are ND and BC so difficult to gauge? They constantly ding people with above average stats. I don't get it. Does BC favor MA residents? It's obviously not a catholic bias.

im median/ slightly below/ non MA and got in with first batch...

BC is just a bit unpredictable...

Each year, their LSN graphs always seem to have WL/Rejections sprinkled into green areas (http://bc.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/1011/) so I thought they might just be super picky with essays. However, I made a fairly obvious typo on my personal statement to them and still got in so I don't understand their reasoning at all. FWIW, I'm also a non-MA resident.

Hey guys, congrats to all those accepted and for those still waiting STAY POSITIVE!! I applied 9/16->under review for the 3rd time on 12/23/11. It would be an honor and a blessing to be a part of this institution!! My mother, who sacrificed so much for me, is visiting for the rest of the holidays and it would be an AMAZING gift if I got accepted!

Anyway guys...Have a wonderful Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!!

Thank you very much Marmot!! :D It was a pleasant surprise to read your comment this morning!! You know, I really feel that the values, tradition and mission of the school align with my own. Not to mention, I believe the program is far more superior than the numbers (ie. rankings) would suggest. I just hope they feel the same way about me:) **fingers crossed**

Enjoy the rest of the holidays everyone and may the new year be filled with opportunity and success!! :D

Anyone else just get an email about the "Public Service Scholarship Application"? I assume they're sending these to all applicants...

Yeah, I'm considering applying for it, but I probably don't have a chance.

I got the email and I withdrew weeks ago. I hope they had the decency not to send it to people who were rejected.

I, too, was updated for the fourth time today. I submitted/was complete on 11/23. Complete again (under review) on 12/8, 12/14, and again 1/3.

You should definitely stay positive. I like your attitude :)

Well. I received it. So my bet is that they did.

I recently received a hold from BC, but then updated again today and it says "Decision Rendered" on the status checker. I don't recall whether or not it said this when I received the hold the first time. Anyone know anything?

Yeah, mine still reads "decision rendered" with a date of 12/22/11. Mine didn't update today, so not sure what that means for you.

Same here. Sigh. I was so good about not checking my status checker for a while there, too...

Decision rendered (1-6). How long should I expect to wait for it?
