Not all all. The Jesuits value scholarship, service and loyalty. If your essay covered some or all of those points, you are a good fit. OTOH, if you have zero community service, BC (and other Catholic schools) will be reluctant to jump at your numbers.


well I have pretty good numbers for BC and have been teaching/volunteering for public schools for 4-5 years... not sure what that says about my app.

With all of this religious and religious value stuff being spouted, I want to give my experience. I was not above either median, I am non-Christian, I have no more than a few months of community service to my name, my personal statement did not revolve around helping others, and I was accepted after being initially held. Take this however you want.

Waitlisted. Since that removes any chance of scoring $$ I'll probably withdraw.

I'll take a look and see if makes sense to ride it out. Things are getting so serious now.

I think this year with the decline in apps schools will offer $$ off waitlists. Hang in there danitt! Although you already got into a bunch of great schools! Any other held applicants hear back?

Thank you! Good luck to you, I see you're still waiting to hear from them. It took almost exactly three months for me to get a decision.

This makes me mad. I wrote about being a Big Brother, doing Environmentors and competitive Crossfit training (I "service" my muscles).

It's tongue in cheek. I don't actually do any crossfit lol

EDIT: It's tongue in cheek because people like to brag in their apps about stuff like that.

I'm surprised that there was a wave a WL yesterday but nothing today. I know that there were some acceptances here and there but not like yesterday with the held crowd.

sorry to hear that, man...that's rough. BC seems to have a certain unpredictability...the 170/3.5 rejection is pretty nuts.
