Will Boston College still consider you for other schools if you don't get into Carroll?

I really really wanna get a business degree,
but BC stated in their FAQs: "Students must apply to one of the four academic divisions at ......... and selectivity is very similar across the divisions, with the exception of the Carroll School of Management . In recent years, few seats have been available in the Carroll School of Management, thus allowing us to enroll only a handful (5–10) of new sophomores and juniors. Please be advised that applying to a different undergraduate division with the intent of transferring into the Carroll School of Management once enrolled at Boston College is not advised."

On the Common App, BC doesn't ask you about your second choice school/major, so if you just list Carroll as your school, will they only consider you for that school? Or if you are not qualified for that school, but qualified for the other schools maybe, then will they take that into consideration and accept you through this process? Please help!

    You can only apply to the one school, I'm afraid.

    @camwow If you really want to go to BC, you might want to apply to an easier school. If you want to study business, then go for CSOM cause what's the point of getting into BC if you give up studying what you want to study?

    It's nearly impossible to transfer into CSOM. Not sure if it's because of the selectivity though. On our tour, our tour guide's biggest tip was to apply to CSOM if there is any chance you want to study business because it's really hard to transfer because of the business requirements.

    If you really want a biz degree, than Carroll is your only option. Of course, you could always be an Econ major in A&S, but that is not an undergrad biz degree?

    are you looking to transfer in? If so, the quote that you noted is spot on. A few years ago, Carroll did not accept any transfers since it over-enrolled the Frosh class from the year before. (Yield was higher than expected.) Even very competitive students cannot transfer in if there are no beds available.

    I believe they will only consider you for CSOM - that's what an adcom member said when she spoke to my school. I'm in your same boat though - I applied early action to CSOM.
