Found it on the website, but called the office to double check because the dates seemed a bit wonky, but the ASW are:

Friday, February 24th
or
Saturday, April 1st

Think I'll be headed there in February. That's when the weather Boston is nicest, right?

I was looking for info on this yesterday. Did they say how/where you sign up?

If you like mounds of black snow piled on every corner, you're in for a treat.

How important is going to an ASW rather than a visit? I will be on the other side of the country on February 24 and I'm not sure if I'll be able to make April 1 work, but I definitely want to go visit to at least get a feel for the campus.

Nope - the only mention of the dates is in one of the graphics on the admitted students page - https://www.bc.edu/bc-web/schools/law/admission-aid/jd-program/admitted-students.html - which I don't think has been actually sent out to us yet... And I haven't found anything on the Agora portal either.

I think it adds value as you get more opportunities to meet current students / see faculty, but I think it's marginal. Having a curated experience is nice but you'll get the same info out of a campus visit for the most part. I'm trying to get to as many as I can (partly for the stipends; although BC doesn't have one) so I can see the culture of the schools, which might come out more in ASW's

It's been a month since I submitted my application, and I still haven't gone complete. Has anyone else had a wait time like this? It just says that my application has been received, but no status anywhere... did you guys get complete emails or anything?


FWIW, I didn't get any email telling me my file was complete or in review. Just the "thank you for applying & here's your status checker" email and the admission email today. Good luck!

Man this is weird, seems like the waitlists and acceptances are just all over the board?

Testy is an understatement. They're waitlisting people they have no business waitlisting. It could come back to bite them in the ass - interested to see their medians next year.

I was accepted yesterday! 50< gpa/lsat< 75 I sent in my application last week so I was surprised that I got my decision so quickly. I hadn't gotten around to looking at the status checker. I was kinda worried that I wouldn't get accepted after lurking on this thread so I also submitted a Why BC, which may have helped me.
