It would be nice to know if anyone that has been rejected received an invitation...at least it'd be proof that it indicates nothing...

This is what I'm hoping for. I actually have two other offers that I'm really excited about, one of which I'll probably take, but I'd like to be rejected here first. Just for peace of mind.

Edit: Exhaustion.

Still complete but not under review since 1/15, should I call them?

Been complete since 2/6, but no change on my status checker since then. Emailed them 2 days ago and got that automated invitation that everyone's talking about. What should I do now?

1. Continue waiting;
2. Continue reading TLS while you wait;
3. Independently come to the inevitable conclusion: Retake.

No, please no! :evil: This is perhaps the most inviting and encouraging thread on TLS. Don't start with the retake banter. Although that's true for many people, I'm sick of seeing that regurgitated on this forum for just about any application problem. :evil: BC just needs to get on it. This is largely out of our hands at this point.

Just do what I do when a school is being too slow for my liking: scream 'YIELD-PROTECTING LOSERS' alone in my apartment then go get a sandwich.

I haven't seen any movement since I applied on 1/13, so I sent in an LOCI today. No response yet. Also sent in an LOCI to BU, who responded in about an hour.

I'm not really that impatient about BC, though. 8-12 weeks is 8-12 weeks.

Applied 1/13, no update until early March, I believe, last update 3/14. Sent in the LOCI today and an hour later got a simple acknowledgment e-mail.

FYI:

For those waiting to hear about Merit Scholarships: they are currently working on them and hope to have them out by the end of the month aka late next week.

Yes, I did. Wanted to make sure that there was still some money left :)

This BC admissions experience has been disenchanting.

Please, please everyone, STOP calling. Instead, put on whatever critical thinking cap you might have, and recognize the fact that BC has yet to read/process January & February applications.

Not only do they have money left, they have lotsa of it. They have to. They have barely processed half of their total apps.

So, stop wasting their time with senseless phone calls. They serve no pupose. (And realistically, if you are truly this anal/anxious, perhaps the legal field is not a good place for you to hang your hat.)

End of rant. :roll:

Some schools give out money as they go, otherwise gave it out in batches after a good amount of decisions were out. They are not going to wait to read every last app before giving out money. That screws over the people who applied a reasonable point in the cycle and not at the last minute in February. Especially if they want to have those kids who they accepted to put down a deposit and attend their school. So yes, it is a completely reasonable thing to call and ask about, especially since it took all of1 minute and 30 seconds. I'm pretty sure I am going to do a hell of a job in the legal field...

EDIT: Most schools have given out money without processing all their apps, specifically the apps from late January/February

Then multiply that by the other hundreds (thousands?) of applicants who have still not been read. What if they followed your lead and called? What IS the point?

Besides "knowing" that they have yet not allocated all of their scholarship money -- which any critical thinking person could have easily concluded -- you still have zero information, correct? Is your scholly $100k or zero, or somewhere in between. You learned (literally) nothing. And that is a fact.

No, but any school would be moronic to allocate all of their budget when close to half of the apps are still unread. Would you really want to attend such a place? Seriously?

No sh*t sherlock, I figured as much. I did learn that I will not be hearing today about money and that I will be hearing next week, which helps in my own decision making process.

They have already read over 2/3 of their apps, if not more. I think they know how to allocate their funds. Furthermore, I wanted to make sure that they were sending out Merit scholarships before another schools deadline. If they told me they would not be out till say April 14, my decision would have been heavily impacted.

On a less angry note, I just got an email about IP law at BC. After talking to Joseph Liu at the ASD and reading their official stance on their IP program I am really excited about BC!!
