To those fringe applicants: lsac released on their website that applications are down around 24% and applicants are down around 22%. I hope those medians drop and that BC is takin this decline into account during the admissions process.

Good luck to all those who just had decisions rendered.

:( I'm stuck at 11/27 under review. I applied really early, first or second week of Oct.

:cry: :cry:

Also just checked and have the decision rendered. Ugh this wait for USPS is truly torture. Hopefully the mail moves quickly. My last and only UR date was 11/28.

Hopefully good news will be here soon! ... or an e-mail? Maybe? Please BC?

That's pretty remarkable. Could you please put out a link, I'd love to read more about it. Thanks

Anyone have any idea as to whether we should expect financial aid/scholarship info with the decision if we're admitted? What's BC done in the past?

They usually don't release money until after January

Is that really the full phrasing on the top of your applicant status page for BC? No one else has had any mention of decisions via e-mail.

Yup. I know, that's why I'm worried.

Hmm, that is definitely intentional. Your numbers aren't too likely for BC, so that could be the rejection or waitlist signal (or I'm wrong and it's the admit signal!)

Sounds like maybe they've changed their approach this year?

The numbers of the people getting this notification seem to be lower than those receiving decision rendered yesterday....I'm just hoping to NOT receive a decision today now!

Sorry to hear man. This bodes well for those who updated to DR yesterday. Although I'm curious if it means acceptance or waitlist..
