Was trying to hold off on booking my flight for the April ASD until I heard about scholly info, but I guess it might be better now to go ahead and book and buy cancellation insurance as well. Plz come in clutch with schollies BC.

I am going to be attending the February ASD, its like a 3 hour drive from NYC, so it's no big deal. I am just waiting on scholarship information to make my final decision. Fordham Provided me nearly 100k over the three years, I am hoping BC matches it or even beats it since I am over their 75th for LSAT and GPA

Went complete in early December as was waitlisted in early January, which seems like a faster turnaround than most on here (sorry). Sent a LOCI with an update to my file last week.

Anyone in a similar boat, or have an idea as to when the WL will start to hear back? Obviously it'll be some time after all outstanding applications have a decision rendered, just trying to get an idea.

I was waitlisted in December! I think last years BC waitlist thread had some acceptances in the middle of April. Here's hoping we get some good news soon!

Went UR over the weekend. Does anyone know how fast they usually reach a decision? Is the status checker updated before email? etc.

I think it seems like it's usually 2 weeks, but I've been UR since 1/25 and haven't heard back yet, and it seems like that's the case for everyone who went UR around when I did.

Usually 2-3 weeks. Status checker will update to decision letter sent the day the email comes

Can someone please tell me the full COA for BC. LST has it at around 260K but according to BC the annual student cost is around 70K per year. What am I missing?

Also how did you find the accepted students FB page? Was there a link in one of the emails they sent us?

Thanks!

Hopefully they'll send out info before March. I would love to start my actual decision making process in the next few weeks.

70k a year seems a little low but maybe I'm overestimated how expensive housing is in Boston. I'm under the impression you're looking at paying 1500 a month for a decent place which would make the COA closer to 75 or even 80k a year. Still don't see COA reaching 260k though

Maybe it includes housing, transit, parking fees (which I didn't realize were a thing, southerners smh), or something of the sort. Still seems steep though, but I'd rather highball it than lowball it.

Yeah it does include that stuff but I don't see how BC is gonna cost 86k a year when tuition is 48k unless you're living in the penthouse

Since I know I won't be able to make it out for ASW could someone PM me their honest impression of the school/campus/people after the weekend is over? I won't make any hard decisions without info on $$ but I'd like to know as much about the school as I can!

Yea I got you. I am heading up to Boston next Thursday from NYC. I will tell you what I think about the overall vibe. I will tell you what we do as well since the event is from 9 am - 3pm.
