They've received everything from me but one LOR that I am waiting on LSAC (GRRRR!!!) to post and send.

BC is a far reach for me GPA-wise (3.23), but my LSAT is very competitive (164).

I'm hoping the 5 years out of school and WE will be enough of a GPA boost, as BC is pretty much tops for me!

Good luck! :)

Still nothing?

Does anyone know when the first decisions were released last year?

Since BC has decided to ding so many 164s last cycle I can't justify paying $87 to apply when BU waived my fee and they are way more friendly to 164/3.8x applicants.

BC does early action first, then regular... they send out EA decisions ON Dec. 15th, not BY Dec. 15th, so I think there is little to no chance of hearing before then.

Thanks. Good to know when I should start obsessing over hearing/not hearing from BC :D

status just changed to decision pending. Crazy similar stats to above posters 163/3.65, non-trad (blind, hoping that helps a bit too)

They send all of their EA decisions out on December 15th, none before. I don't know if this reduces or increases the waiting anxiety.

My status changed today:

Current Status: Your application has been completed.
Current Status Date: 11/12/2009
Decision Status: Pending Decision
Decision Status Date: 11/5/2009

So....it wasn't complete before?

I love BC, but I think 164s are going to have a tough cycle there. I think it could be the same at BU -- since BC dinged a bunch of 164s last year and bumped its median, won't BU try to follow suit?

Hoping that Dec. retake turns out better...

I don't know what medians you are looking at, but here on the TLS rankings it shows the 25th & 75th as:

BU - 163-166
BC - 162-165

BC's median is up to 166 and almost every 164 on LSN last cycle got dinged....

From BC's Web site:

2009 Entering Class
Number of applicants.............................................................7,166
Enrolled students....................................................................264

Median GPA
25th percentile.......................................................................3.34
75th percentile.......................................................................3.68
Median LSAT
25th percentile........................................................................163
75th percentile........................................................................167

Median LSAT ..........................................................................166
Median GPA ..........................................................................3.53

The stats that you've posted are clearly more valuable than the tiny sample that LSN provides.

Many 164s on LSN may have been dinged, but according to the stats, 25% of the 2009 entering class scored a 163 or lower (and surely they're not all URMs or Pulitzer Prize winners).

If you have a 163 or a 164 and a GPA at or above the 75th%, I don't see any reason to feel particularly pessimistic.

Anyone know if they are super-particular about GPA, or are they a school where it becomes less important the further out from undergrad you are?

Well, based on LSN, it looks to me like they'll take sub-3.3, with an LSAT 167+.

Of course as someone pointed out, LSN is a small sample.
