I know each school is different, but I thought BC had an "Under Review" status. Have others seen an Under Review status, or does the date just change? Thanks everyone!


I had two complete dates 12/17 and 2/12 and went under review 2/21


Thanks! Based on the other conversations, I thought there was an under review stage. Good luck and hope you hear soon!

No idea what BC is up to this round. I was dinged and above 75th LSAT. Good luck, but I got an email rejection before the status checker updated to denied.

your status checker showed "denied"? mine says "decision rendered". so maybe its a good sign?.

I guess i'm getting waitlisted. by far whoever got in saw "accepted" on the status checker page.

oh well

I got accepted and my status checker just says "decision rendered" with no mention of acceptance. I did receive an admit email a few hours after the 'decision rendered' appeared. My LSAT was ~25% with GPA below 25%, but strong softs.

"Decision Rendered" 2/24.

Above Median LSAT, <25% international GPA, strong W/E.

Still awaiting an email. Currently feel like vomiting.

Is not having the deposit amount showing typically a bad sign? Mine are still zeroed out....

I also fully acknowledge that I'm an obsessed wreck right now. BC is my top choice and I've been accepted to higher ranked schools with scholarship offers so I'm 100% on edge right now.

I was accepted back in January and my deposit amounts still don't show on my status checker. I would just go about your normal day because it took me a few hours to get the email.

First complete date was 12/21. Then a long span of nothing until 2/14, then "under review" on 2/21, "decision rendered" 2/24. Email this morning. So it was a long, brutal span of inactivity followed by a flurry.

Did anyone attend the recent ASD? Did they mention anything about when scholarship info is coming out?

Does anyone know if the BC Public Service Scholarship can be applied for in later years? I know that recipients must reapply each year, but have you missed the boat completely if you didn't apply as a 0L? I missed the Feb. 1st priority deadline and am planning on sending in a late application, but am curious about my options if I don't receive it this year.

How did y'all receive your scholarship info? Email or letter or what? My admission packet didn't have anything.

I received an email today saying that scholarship offers start going out at the end of January and continue to do so on a rolling basis. So the sense that I get is, depending on when you got accepted it might be perfectly normal for the scholly info to not be in the welcome packet.

It may not mean anything. Most of the schools that have offered me scholarships sent the scholarship offer after I had already received the acceptance letter. What we really need is feedback from someone who has already received a scholly from BC so we can get a sense for how they do business.
