Yeah I just noticed it says at the top of the status checker that it will go to my permanent address. It's a big envelope if it's an acceptance right? And regular if it's not?

Sorry, NH. Their loss!

Where else did you apply? What are your numbers, if you don't mind...

Good luck elsewhere.

Went DR today. Better call home and tell my parents to watch for a letter, and hopefully a packet.

Have hope! BC puts more emphasis on GPA and less on LSAT than does BU.

For EA applicants who were held and planning on submitting LOCI's, are you submitting via snail mail?

DR today. LSAT>>75th, GPA just under median. Grad degree, good extracurriculars.. Already in at BU Law, so not sweating it, but gosh I'd love to have the two schools to choose from! (I love the blatant BC=BU mentality)...

Do acceptances/rejections arrive via snail mail only? Any correspondence via email from BC?

Good luck to us!

Yeah you really can't go wrong with either school but its great to have some choices (very difficult ones at that). Good luck!

Sounds like our stats and softs (i.e. grad school) are nearly identical. I'm in at BU but am still awaiting a decision at BC. Good luck with the BC decision; I hope you get in.

Thanks guys. I'm hoping for the best for you too. What perplexes me is why they waited so long to render the decision. I wonder what made them think: Okay, let's just make it final... (then again, it could be a waitlist.. :? )

Either way, if it's an acceptance, should I see a packet come in the mail? Or is it like WUSTL where I can expect an email only?

You will get a big envelope in the mail if accepted :)

That seems to be the trend.

Those of you with recent DRs, when did you apply/go complete?

BC's LSAT medians range is 162-165; BU's is 163-166. BC's GPA range is tighter than BU's but not substantively different (3.49-3.77 for BC; 3.48-3.82 for BU). The difference is small but enough to possibly matter.
