BC transfer student

Recommended Posts

so i applied to BC  2 weeks after the transfer deadline (Jan 15) because i had to leave my previous msw program immediately this semester for financial reasons,  I have yet to hear back and i was accepted to the program when i applied last year.  I called when I applied and they said that they would still accept my application but it's been almost 7 weeks since i applied. What do you think my chances are for this year?

Hello kaykay,

 

I'm sorry to hear that you had to immediately leave your previous MSW program this semester due to financial reasons.  Assuming that you're not currently living in the Boston area, the sheer cost-of-living and roughly $40,000 a year in tuition, fees and books makes Boston College one of the most expensive MSW programs to attend.  The average cost of rent is $1600 a month for a one bedroom apartment in the Allston/Brighton area (near Boston College).  Two to three bedroom apartments (which generally are floors of a 3-4 story house) run around $2100-2400 a month.  So the average rent per person, if you could figure splitting that between 2-3 people + utilities, may run you around $700-800 a month.  I'm saying all of this because, depending on the causes of your leaving your former program, Boston College may or may not be a cheaper option in the long-run.

Thanks for the feedback. I probably should have mentioned that im originally from boston and was attending an msw program out of state, hence why i had financial issues. If i attend BC i would be saving money because i would be living at home.
