Just got an email asking me to confirm that I want my app considered even though I'm registered for the December test. I hope that means apps are going under review today/in the next few days!

Anyone get an email indication that they're under review?

Did you originally email them and tell them to review your app without Dec score?


I did (I actually emailed them before I registered to ask what their policy was). They actually emailed me again today right after to say "Sorry, we realized we already have an email of you confirming you want you app reviewed."

Where'd you get 3.75? Just pulled this off their website:

2017 entering class

Number of applicants: 4,810
Enrolled students: 250

Median GPA: 3.61
25th percentile: 3.44
75th percentile: 3.68

Median LSAT: 163
25th percentile: 162
75th percentile: 164

I was looking at the 2020 medians thread and saw it on the spread sheet and my advisor told me it changed to 3.75 too? But I also saw that on their website and thought it was from the cycle before 2020 so I’m confused lol

:shrug: I'd go with the schools website as the closest to group truth. BU's site says their media is 3.73, maybe people are getting the two mixed up

Checking mylsn.info, since the 13-14 cycle they've started decisions last week of October/first week of November.


This is strange. Complete since 10/16, just waiting for the UR email..


Same. Complete 10/14, no under review email yet.


Same, complete 9/15 and it's been radio silence.


So I believe decisions are coming out starting week of Thanksgiving and continue to trickle out every Thursday after that. Overheard that at the LSAC Forum today.

Checking in! Love this school. Currently "complete," submitted last month.

I'm registered for December as well but I didn't get this e-mail, so now I'm wondering if I should ask them to review my app with my current score... :?

BC has a status checker? The only email I ever got was one saying my app was complete

Check ur spam? I applied yesterday and got a status checker email today.

Nope, no where to be found.
Mind sharing the link for it? I can't seem to find it on their website. I was able to force it to work at Duke when I didn't get at status checker email
Never mind, found it

Under review today as well!

Any idea of how long it takes to hear back once you go under review?

ugh, the wait is KILLING me...I applied 10/16 so hopefully that means I'll be under review soon?

Good luck to everyone who is!

Ok so what's the consensus on submitting if I'm close but no cigars below their 25ths and I'm registered for December?

What do you think the chances are that a wave of decisions goes out tomorrow for October submissions? Last year a big wave went out on thursday the 10th and if it's anything like that, tomorrow would be the day for a wave, especially since it seems like a lot of decisions come out on thursdays.
