Tier 3 would not be the right words. Tier 3 describes a school like...SUNY Brockport maybe. BC is Tier 1, but the far lower end of Tier 1, which includes all of the schools basically in the 40 or so of USNWR National Universities and top 10-15 of LACs. BC may be Tier 3 within Tier 1, but it is certainly not in the main stream definition of a third tier school. With regards to grad school, you are a little off. Competition to get into the best grad schools of course is increasing, as there are more qualified applicants from undergrad schools that you would have never seen applicants from in the past. Does this mean you must be in the top 10 out of a class of 2250 at BC to get into grad school? No of course not. All you have to do is look at our med school acceptance statistics every year to see that this is false. Also, I am of the believe that the school does improve as the quality of students improves. The best physicist in the world is not going to help a student in an intro physics class more than the 1000th best physicist would...therefore these differences are basically irrelevant at the undergrad level, and they are precisely why BC grad programs are not very highly regarded. At the undergrad level, I would rather go to a school with BC's professors and Harvard's student body rather than the other way around.

I'm really confused as to why I was waitlisted. I have a 3.75 UW, 31 ACT, lots of EC's and I'm Jewish, which my GC said was like a hook because BC is trying to get more diverse. I'm not going to take my spot on the waitlist because in reality I wasn't going to go there anyway, but thought I was going to get in.
college decisions are really unpredictable, my stats are subpar compared to the other people who got accepted, and i got in. i really have no true explanation, but recs are vitally important to decisions made.

i honestly dont know how you got rejected, possibly the program you applied to? maybe the essay? i dont know. i still can't fathom how you got rejected, but... with your stats, you should be able to make it into a better college
