I emailed BC earlier in the week to see if I might hear by the 15th, and was told this exact line once again. I'm all for them taking some lee way to make a decision, but it's a fair request to have a decision by the 15th, as that'll be my 12th week on the dot, and they didn't even acknowledge the wait or the upcoming deadlines every other accepted and wait listed student has to contend with.

Edit: How does BC notify?

We're waiting on the same things and both probably getting sick of waiting too!

I've had reasonable success "negotiating" with BC. PM me if you wasn't advice or details.

Big gamble, given that only around 65% of the graduating class last year secured long-term, full-time jobs as lawyers (and most of them not highly-paid ones).

I suppose if you've got someone else footing the entire bill or your family has millions in the bank or something, then money wouldn't be an issue, but then if that were the case, you wouldn't likely be asking this question.

it is definitely a big risk, but whether it is worth taking only you yourself can decide

why not hang there for a while and keep asking for money, I am sure some people including myself with scholarship will withdraw to free funds to other people

True but if you're in the top 40% of your class or so, you have a chance at biglaw. 8)

If you're in the top 10% you have a chance of not making it apparently 8)

Maybe, although that sounds a little optimistic. Better to be in the top 25% or third at minimum.

And I know is...I would not drop 200K or more to have less than a 40% shot at the job I want. Way too risky.

I don't know if you're serious or trolling given that you constantly use smiley faces and post about this issue of BC at sticker incessantly on this forum...

Unless you have a wealthy family behind you, I don't think any school below the T6 is worth sticker. And two of 'em (CN) are only worth sticker if you really want NYC .

Doesn't say anything about it on their website. I'd assume it's not a problem, but you should email/call them to ask for sure.

Haha Welcome to the club. Waiting since march. I think some people might still be waiting from February also.
