BC Omits Its Consideration of Legacy Admissions From Common Data Set, Unlike Many Neighbor Institutions
Like many of its peer institutions, Boston College considers “legacy status” in first-year admissions, according to Grant Gosselin, director of undergraduate admission. But, BC is the only university in the Greater Boston area, however, to omit its consideration of students’ alumni relations—granted to students with family who have attended or currently are attending the University—in its 2021–2022 Common Data Set.
Boston College accepted 16 percent of a record-high 40,477 applicants for the Class of 2026, according to a University release.
A lecture hall for The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will be constructed in Devlin Hall.
