Still under review as of 1/3. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not as I applied relatively early (october test) but have still yet to be waitlisted/rejected. Oh well, all we can do now is wait.

Congrats to those who got in!

I'm still complete as of 12/9. However, my third LOR did not arrive until 12/13, so could this have delayed my file?

WTF? Does BC YP?



I hope that's the case, and I didn't mess something up


Officially, BC does not YP. However, it appears that they liberally wait list applicants with high scores and without an articulated interest in BC.


applying next cycle.. BC would be one of my top choices (BU being the other). How would one articulate interest in BC?

Waitlisted as well, and curious about the same question -- does anyone have any thoughts on how far into their WL BC usually goes?

According to TLS and LSN, looks like the number is pretty low -- 10 seems pretty generous as an estimate. I haven't found much on how well they respond to LOCI's, more LORs, and the like, so who knows.

Application went into review fairly quickly, but I applied late in the cycle. I am closer to the 25% for admitted students, so I am holding minimal hope. Good luck to the rest of you!

Decision rendered and no admit or waitlist email! I'm assuming this means I'm rejected. That's such a shame, I've had dreams of Boston all of my life.

Waitlisted, did anyone get a confirmation email back after signaling you would like to remain on the waitlist? (I'm paranoid as I was mistakenly taken off a waitlist that I tried to remain on during UG admissions)

Could someone who is admitted share the deposit deadline dates for us waitlisters? Thanks.

I sent back to form the same day that I got the wait list message, but did not receive a confirmation. I might just call next week on Tuesday or Wednesday just to confirm that it's in my file, though -- I, too, am a little paranoid!!

Anyone in review 1/3/12? Applied in September->under review a few times->status checker last in review on 1/3/12. An acceptance would be a dream come true!! I truly believe 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:)

Hang in there to all those waiting and yes (wait for it).....STAY POSITIVE!!!

Does everyone receive the BC Public Service Scholarship e-mail, or would it actually be worthwhile for me to apply to?
