BC Early Decision for Fall 2022 Admission

A bit off topic: I see a lot of folks noting they had great LOC’s. Are teachers and counselors sharing their LOC’s with students or are people just assuming the LOC’s were great based on conversations with the teachers/counselors?

Oops - And by LOC’s, I mean LOR’s!

I always wonder that as well. In our case- we have no idea and my kid was basically remote junior year with asynchronous learning (with school only 4 days a week, Mondays being homeroom check- in for 10 mins!) so I worry about it.

With my niece, my sister told me that during parent/teacher conferences, the teacher told my sister she was so excited and honored to write a letter of recommendation, so I am assuming it will be a good one!

I was actually wondering same. As far as I understood, you were not supposed to see LOR’s - they get sent directly from HS to the college so that the writer could write as accurate of a review of the student as possible, without feeling any pressure to embellish. We did not see my daughters …and after reading some of the comments you are referring to, I said to my husband “man, I wish we could read D’s LOR’s!”. :slight_smile: I’m assuming they were strong b/c she was admitted but no verification here…

AFTER all admissions done, 2 were shared spontaneously. They were amazing–one had the “best student in X many yrs” with lots of specifics on why . Don’t know on the other(s).

Anyone get accepted to the Nursing program? If so, could you please list your stats? Thank you!

My Daughter got in ED 2 last year and was assigned four years housing too

Do you mind if I ask what her stats were? Thanks!

Common App reported that apps to Highly Selective schools were up 11% overall this year through mid November but MA schools in that category were up nearly 20% showing BC isn’t alone in seeing much more popularity for ED this year in the state. Florida schools were up nearly 50% though!

Where do you find this report?

There was a news report I found on google in regards to higher applications being seen this year…

if you got deferred: are u going to wait for your final decision or apply ED2 somewhere else? also if you are waiting, are you sending in more info?

I don’t think I’ll get in so I’m looking elsewhere. I might ED2 elsewhere - waiting to hear back from a couple more EA schools before I decide. I sent my first quarter grades and LOCI. How about you?

I already sent in my first quarter grades so ill send my semester grades when they come out. I havent written a loci. how did u write yours?

I thanked them for considering my app for ED, explained why BC was my first choice and how I would contribute to the community.
