Waitlisted at BC

Waitlisted at BC
« on: January 26, 2007, 04:20:31 PM »
It was probably a bad idea to go visit BC before I got accepted.  The campus was great and the school shot up alongside GW at the top of my list.  Unfortunately, I got waitlisted 2 days later.  I was kinda shocked considering my numbers are at or above their 75 percentiles.  Anyone else out there have a similar experience or know anything about their waitlist?

i think a lot of people wanting to go to the northeast will apply to BC as a safety while gunning for T14. Some of those got in, and others didn't. It's plausible that a lot of people will withdraw from BC. But to be honest, I'm talking out of my ass.

Based on what I've read on this board, the consensus seems to be that BC admissions is quite unpredictable.

priority waitlisted. i don't know why they call it priority. from the sounds of it, it doesn't seem like there's a regular waitlist category.

I definitely think BC's wait list is unpredictable, I got into U Chicago and got wait listed at BC, which I have to say shocked me because I BC was my safety. Guess that makes me a dumb ass lol

THe priority waitlist is all that BC has... they don't have a regular waitlist so don't be fooled by it.  sorry :(

What is the consensus on what special quality BC is looking for in its candidates? I would say demonstrated leadership skills.

If its leadership then they must have misread my resume and PS.  I had tons of quality and unique leadership activities on my list and it got me nowhere.  If I had to name a quality I would say not out of undergrad, but obviously that is a reach.
