    As this is the first year for ED at BC, it is impossible to tell how it will shake out. Legacy should provide a small boost in the ED round. My D20, who is a legacy as well, also applied ED to BC. We have no idea what to expect, but are hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. She applied EA to 3 other schools, and will prepare another 4-5 apps for the RD round. Good luck!!

    MY D a BC sophomore. Her scores were a little higher, if you can get your SAT up, I think it may help. Legacy obviously helps. Not sure how ED will work for you, but I hope for the best and good luck to you. Exciting time. Remember you will go where it is meant to be............
