If Boston College is undoubtedly your first choice and you are confident in your family`s ability to bear the full cost of participation with or without financial assistance tailored to the needs, we advise you to use the Early Decision option. Boston College is blind in the admission process and is committed to meeting all the proven needs of every accredited student. We are committed to enrolling a student population that has a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. We`re proud to make Boston College an affordable option for families, but we recommend using our net price calculators to determine your likelihood of qualifying for financial aid and what type of package you might expect if you`re admitted. If you are applying in the first year, yes, you do not need to choose a main subject until the end of your second year. . . .
