Also above both 75ths and also went complete early February. I got an email two weeks ago saying I was under review and then received my decision two days later. So once you've received the former, the latter should promptly follow!

I've been under review for exactly 2 weeks - will I get another email notifying me that my decision will be rendered soon? Or will the next notification I get be my decision?

I got the under review email, then the decision. Nothing in between.

Same.

Now the impatient wait for me is for $$. Almost two weeks and nothing yet.

You and I are on a similar timeline and possibly even similar stats :) (GPA 25<50, LSAT 75+). My app has been complete with no movement since the Feb LSAT went out. Hopefully we go into review soon with positive results! I'll let you know if I go into review. (I'm checking obsessively.)

I LOVE Boston and have some family there. I'd be thrilled to be at BC. And they're kicking butt on the new rankings - go them!


I'll let you know when I go into review as well! My stats are LSAT 75+ and GPA 75ish.

Is a blazer normal attire for asd or is that too much? I can't remember what people wore when I went to cardozo

I wore a blazer for Emory ASD and I definitely felt overdressed, FWIW. It's also warmer in the ATL right now, so that could have been why.

I didn't wear one at Indiana and felt underdressed.

I'm happy to see BC's scholarship offers meeting (if not exceeding), those of BU. Anybody else notice this? And yes, I am accounting for the slight difference in total coa between the two.

Has anyone heard word about merit awards this week? I was admitted 3/9, and had expected to hear something by now.

I was admitted around then and have gotten my merit award. I got 105k, do y'all think it will be possible to negotiate up? I'm in at UVA, Duke, expect to be in at Cornell.

Has anyone successfully negotiated with BC, or are they not budging this cycle?

I'm trying to decide how long to wait to start negotiating. I've gotten into a few lower T13 schools (duke, UVA, expecting to get Cornell), but so far am not seeing any money from them. BU also gave me 90k. I don't know whether it's better to start negotiating now to try and make sure I get to them before they run out of money, or to wait a week or two and negotiate then (when I will only be a few days from the deadline for Deposit 1). Thoughts?

I was put on the waitlist about two weeks ago. My LSAT is a 162. I was PTing in the high 160s and broke 170 a few times, and am sure that I'll raise my score in June.

I'm writing a LoCI to BC. Should I mention that I plan to retake in June? Or would that cause them to put my app on hold until that score comes in no matter what?

Also, I have a campus visit planned for this coming weekend - should I wait to write my LoCI after the visit? I could include tidbits about why I loved the campus, the faculty, etc. if I were to wait. Alternatively, I could write a LoCI now, and then an additional follow-up after my visit. Any thoughts? Riding the struggle bus on this one.

In not sure about the LSAT question but MS9 might have answered a question like this in his thread if you wanna search over there. You can also ask him, just keep the question General and not about BC specifically.

As for this visit, definitely write one after the visit. That's always a old idea to include visit info. I wouldn't write a LOCI and a follow up...you don't want to bother them too much.

Good luck!
