I applied on 10/31 via FT, was accepted via email on 11/10. LSAT ~50% median/GPA >75%.

For reference for other applicants waiting to hear or on waitlists: I have two friends who are extremely intelligent and qualified who were waitlisted at BC, then ended up getting off waitlist in May/June and are now attending. This doesn't help resolve the paradox (haw..haw...LSAT humor..sorry I'm the worst), but I hope this offers some hope to those on waitlist who want to attend.

In! Just got the email!

Went under review 3 days ago, so I was SUPER shocked to find an acceptance letter today. Hope this means I'm an attractive candidate for some of the other schools I applied to!

Best of luck to all of you!

Congratulations! Yes, I would imagine that means you're an attractive candidate. Are you on lawschoolnumbers? It'll be a long wait for news of possible scholarships in the spring.

Thanks! I'm >75 for both LSAT and GPA but not by much. I saw that some people on this thread got WL with similar numbers so I started freaking out. Not on LSN yet but I'm planning on hopping on that some time this weekend!

Are you in BC as well? Or still waiting?

Yes, I'm in. There have been surprising WL results. Yeah, for sure get on LSN. It'll help the rest of us! Anyway, congrats!

Hey all! Just got my acceptance today! Definitely on my shortlist of schools I am strongly considering. For timeline purposes, I applied on November 3rd, and was on the "fast track" with LSAT/GPA both >75th.

Just applied FT! :D For those who have received decisions, how much time passed between submitting your app and going under review?

Might be a silly question, but how do you know if you're under review?

Thanks! I sent it in 10/28 and was accepted 11/10. I was FT.
I just don't check my mail often so I didn't get my letter until yesterday lol.

Exactly the same for me. I bet they looked at our apps back to back by the same person :)

Just received my acceptance email today. Under review on 11/15 and received decision today, 11/22. I am over 75th for LSAT and under 25th for GPA.

Congrats to others here for your acceptances. Go Eagles. Great pre-Thanksgiving treat.

Wish I would have hopped on the email list sooner or done whatever I needed to do to get on the fast track application - oh well, I'm predicting next week for movement for me here. I want to end up in Boston so an acceptance to BC would be great news! Complete on 11/02 so it's not like it has been crazy long, just seeing you all get decisions makes me want mine more!

Applied 11/18, went complete 11/21, and no movement since. I really regret submitting so close to Thanksgiving, now the wait is going to be even longer. GPA ~25% and LSAT ~50% so idk how great my chances are anyway (hoping for some minority boost).

I hope a lot of other schools start making moves next week as well! Best of luck!
