Checking in! I visited campus a couple weeks ago and I was honestly disappointed at how small it was compared to the main campus. We'll see what kind of money I get though.

I'll be applying as soon as my last LOR comes through

What is this Fast Track that people are speaking of? From what I've read, it just seems like a typical fee waiver notice. I never received it - I wonder if it was selected based on the potential applicant's merit, or just 100% random.

For those who received Fast Track email, were your LSAT and GPA above the median?

FYI, my LSAT is slightly above the median and GPA is right around the median and never got the email.

The Fast track is a waiver as well as an expedited decision. This is from the email: "The Boston College Fast Track Plus Program offers select candidates a fee waiver to apply to Boston College Law School. We also guarantee a decision within 10 business days of the date your file goes into review."

LSAT and GPA both above 75th

Just received the email around 2pm? I believe I submitted mid-Sept. Best of luck!

Can you PM me what time were you accepted? I'm holding out hoping I get a decision tonight. Above both 75ths.

I felt the same way... I didn't see BC's main campus, but the law campus felt underwhelming. I only really got to see the library and free outside of the buildings though. So I'll see what comes of my application. Didn't rule it out.

I felt the same way... I didn't see BC's main campus, but I was highly disappointed with their law campus. It looks way nicer online and it's very small, in the middle of nowhere, and underwhelming.

Agreed. I drove over to the main campus after and it was absolutely beautiful. Insult to injury.

International applicant...

Solicited a fee waiver.

In the same email, I also asked about TOEFL waiver but got no response.

For those of you that were FT and got your acceptance on 11/3, were you under review for all 10 days or did it come earlier?
