Untitled Document There is no concrete formula for gaining admission to Boston College. Admission to the University is highly selective, with 30% of applicants admitted each year. We are fortunate to have many talented applicants from across the United States, and the world.

Each application we receive for admission is reviewed fully by the admission staff. Boston College does not have a minimum G.P.A and/or standardized test score that a student needs to meet in order for his or her application to be reviewed. Rather, we believe that an applicant who puts the time and effort into applying to Boston College deserves to have his or her application evaluated fully. So while we can't provide you with a formula to gain admission to Boston College, we can assure you that your completed application to the University will receive careful, thoughtful, and deliberate attention from our admission committee.

We hope you find this website helpful in gaining insight about our selection process. Please do not hesitate to contact our office should you have additional questions.
