Sorry corgi
:(((( sorry
does bc have an "under review" period or will it say "complete" until they reach a decision?

applied mid nov and still didn’t get a decision. will i have to wait another two weeks or do you think they might release a small wave next week?

Curious if anyone else had this happen, I was denied ED back in Dec but my Lawhub updated the status checker to the top randomly today. When going in it shows a waitlist doc area but nothing under status.
StripedBumpyBeagle
15:54
Any ideas as to whether this means a WL or if anyone else had something similar?
I didn't do ED but applied RD early Dec. I have a waitlist section on my portal but status and substatus still says Complete
so also wondering if I am WL or if it is a mistake on their end
yellowtomato
16:30
i think everyone got the waitlist section

Leave it to reddit to make people feel like garbage for getting into BC rather than getting waitlisted. lol

Can't believe I didn't hear anything today...
Does your status ever change to in review, or does it just stay complete?
My lsd tracker says I'm waitlisted, but I haven't gotten an email from BC and the provided tracker still says complete, is the LSD tracker wrong?

Suppose one got 75%+ off at BC, only 25% off at BU, and wants big law and doesn't care about which market one practices in. I know big law is not a guarantee from either of these schools, but I've heard that BU is a more portable degree than BC but that there are a decent number of BC grads in big law firms in Boston. If that's correct, and if $ isn't a total non-factor if one's decision-making, do we have here a reasonably strong reason to prefer BC? I sort of think we do, but I also feel like most people on reddit would recommend BU even under these conditions. Thoughts?
BC just went to the top of my Lawhub status tracker, but my application still just says complete. Has this happened to anyone else?
@8888887777776t6t: I spoke to both and they both place very well in BL especially for a school that isn't a t14

@ColorfulThickBullfrog: thanks, that's helpful. When you say you spoke to both, do you mean that you spoke to people in the office of career services for both, alumni of both, both, none of the above?
@EnvironmentalLaw: Same happened to me a week or two ago. Went UR a week later. Not entirely sure what it means but I don't believe you are UR quite yet
@8888887777776t6t: I spoke to one of the Dean's at BU and an admissions specialist at BC. It's in my notes but one of them had 60% of their last class go into BL.

Good to know. Thx.
I’m guessing there will be one of their biweekly waves tomorrow
yellowtomato
14:16
if my app just went UR today, does that mean i probably won’t hear tomorrow? I applied in november

@yellowtomato: mine went UR the day before the last wave and I haven't heard yet :/

@ecko: ugh ok, thanks for letting me know!

does the bc status actually say ur? last I heard it only marks as completed with a date change
yellowtomato
12:18
@willypetey27: my tracker through lawhub recently updated to in review, but my tracker that i received from BC in the email after i applied still says complete

@yellowtomato: oh??? interesting, mine was marked completed a month after it was marked just complete. thanks!
Does BC usually just do 1 wave when they release? Are we likely to get another wave later today? This one seems much smaller than previous based on data here
