Actually, no I am not! I think it is quite ridiculous to complain about getting 1/2 tuition at such a great school! Expecially by someone who has not-fantastic numbers! I am a high LSAT scorer, and I got no money-- oh, sorry- 10k/yr in unsubsidized loans. My parents are wealthy, but I am not, and I am paying for it all.And truthfully, I think it is pretty crappy that you say such poor things about your potential soon-to-be-school. Not to be incredibly rude, but BC wanted you, and other schools didn't. You should be happy you got in, and if you aren't, then withdraw and reapply elsewhere next year (maybe somewhere of your "caliber" may actually accept you!). There are lots of people who would be ecstatic to go to BC, so give them a chance! And gosh... if my future classmates are all like you, I think the wonderful community that BC has going will FLY out the window.
lol I'm glad someone finally called the OP out on that...frostm3...why BC over GULC?
Hrm, I guess teh main difference is that you are saying I should be thankful a school wanted me, whereas I view an admission as what I earned from my work.I understand that as far as law school applicants go, I'm not at the top of any lists. The comment about selling myself short at BC stems from the fact that I have a tough time not translating my qualifications as a computer engineering or economics graduate applicant to that of a law school applicant. In the case of either of my majors, I have been accepted to graduate programs I feel are more what I was looking for. BC is not in the same ranking area as those schools.But, all this info is only if you actually care. If you just want to harass me for getting down on BC, go right ahead
