In for the ASW; haven't been to Boston for 3 years now, so I'm excited to get back up there.

Has anyone actually received info from BC about the ASW? I just see the dates on their website but no place to sign up or anything.

I might need to do the 4/1 meeting because I am already taking a Friday in February off of work and I don't want to take two of them in a row if I don't have to.

Also - be forewarned, the BC law campus is not Boston. It's in a residential area 15ish minutes from the regular BC campus (which isn't technically in Boston either but it's definitely in a more city-like area).

I don't really know the lingo but I may be a lurker? Have been checking the posts but never posted myself and figured it was time. And I just finished my application up!

I applied to BC last cycle and was rejected. I got waitlisted everywhere else and BC is the lowest ranked school I applied too, anyone want to shed some light on this for me?

My status checker says that a decision has been rendered and an email is forthcoming--should I anticipate an email within the next few hours or am I looking at days?

I've been refreshing for the last few hours and I think I'm going to lose it.

If you haven't checked your spam, check that, otherwise just relax and go to sleep. They might have made a decision at the end of the business day and you will get one in the morning. Mine came at ~2:30pm EST.

Ehh did some digging on reddit and saw people posting that their info came after the Feb. ASD, which is on 2/24 this year. I'll be hoping for early Feb but realistic bet is later

Great research there! Well, I suppose late Feb won't be too long of a wait. Thanks for finding that.

I e-mailed them 7 days ago asking for a fee waiver and they still haven't answered me.
Not sure how to proceed. My stats are 164 and 3.3
Just want an answer but I'll apply either way
Any advice?

Email them again. I didn't hear anything from them for 2 weeks and email them again and got the waiver.
