Congrats dude!

This brings a weird combination of envy and hope to this frustrated applicant in the complete-but-not-yet-UR camp! >.<

Complete since 12/27... It's the hard knock life for us!

those who have their decision - did you get it first from the status checker or email?

Status checker but it doesn't tell you what the decision is... It just says decision rendered

I actually ended up having to wait for my acceptance to come in the mail. Think I was an anomaly though.

Congrats AlanShore! Long overdue.

Anecdotally, is bc generous? I'm hoping they will at least match my bu scholarship or come close.

It's my (possibly flawed) understanding that BU tends to be a bit more generous than BC and that BC doesn't negotiate.

All that to say, this is a weird cycle overall. Past trends might not tell much.

True. Although I know bc does negotiate only because I saw some have success with negotiating in last year's thread. Scholarships did seem a bit random though... But it's bc!

Last year it was the first week of February, but that obviously hasn't happened. Who the hell knows this cycle...

Anyone else going to the ASD this Friday?

Need some recommendations on hotel/commute strategy. Is it best to get some hotel close by and walk/taxi or best to get any cheap hotel on a T line and ride into Chestnut Hill & take the bus from there to the Newton campus? Lots of options listed on the Lodging & Directions pdf they gave us....
