Congrats! Hopefully it came with a fat scholarship!


No mention of scholarship :( Does that email come later? BU gave me 105K, so I'd be surprised if they stiffed me.

It comes later. Mine came a little over a month later, but I think most people get it around 2 weeks later?

Lsat=75 and gpa > than median. I honestly can't make sense of it.

Does anyone have advice on what to do?

I really hope so, BC is my top choice and I thought this was somewhat of a safety but I really don't know now. Is there a thread on this site that pertains to LOCI and what is supposed to be in them?

Ya I was waitlisted with a 165, 3.5. No idea how that happened. Significant money from ND and GW as well. Plus my dad is a BC alum!

BC seems to have been a bit hasty with some of their WL choices. I am basing this off zero factual evidence whatsoever but I'm thinking this might mean a lot of aceptances off the WL once all of the regular admissions are done.

Thanks! :) I submitted late January. I also received an email earlier this week informing me that my file was under review and a decision would be made shortly.

Anyone going to go to the alumni reception in NYC next week? I guess it's never too early to start networking.

If I get in I'm 99% going to BC. LSN gives me a good chance. LSAT above 75th. But the weird WL decisions worry me.

Yeah, I'm pretty set at this point. Waiting to hear back from BU (Applied end of November..), but my mind is essentially made up. BC seems to have a lot of things going for it, everything that matters anyways.

Is it common practice in Boston to not rent studios to 2 people? My SO and I will be living together next year and had scheduled some viewings but the realtor just cancelled saying he can't rent studios to two people.

Anybody take over a month to go in review after going complete? I'm not sure if this is normal, or if I should email admissions at this point.
