If you don't mind working in Boston (which I would way rather do that NY) I would say BC is by far the better bet. Between the scholarship, lower tuition cost, and lower cost of living you would be saving a significant amount of money for relatively similar employment numbers.

That's awesome, congrats...I'm hoping for a similar offer. I was accepted with a 3.4/167 back in December so hopefully I won't have to wait much longer.

You've been waiting since December? That's rough man, BC needs to get their act together.

haha, true. But BC only just recently started sending out offers, so I've really only been waiting for a week or so. It looks like they have a similar approach as ND, with scholarships coming out way after their first rounds of acceptances.

Finally got merit scholly offer--$35,000/year. Same as I received to BU and given the drop in BC's ranking comparatively , I'm going to have to be swept off my feet at ASW. Looking forward!

Congrats!

Sounds like BC is finally picking up some momentum. Have people been receiving their scholarship offers by email or by letter-mail?

Hmm, that's a little annoying. My numbers aren't much different from all of yours, and I was admitted over a month ago. Hoping to hear about a scholarship soon!

seriously when can we expect a scholarship?

i hate leaving things to a last minute decision. I thought as they free fell on ranking the school should be handing out money faster and in bigger quantity !!

I have Complete since 1/14


I went complete sometime in mid-January and received a second complete status on 3/13... One of the last schools I'm waiting on. This is starting to drive me insane...

I'd be shocked if you didn't get something from BC. General consensus seems to be that BC is a bit on the slow side this cycle.
