New Mod Needed! [22 Jul 2007|03:24pm]

[ mood | chill ]

Hi everyone. Obviously, based on how long I took to approve these posts, I suck as a mod. Since I've graduated, and since I will be moving overseas in September, I think it is only appropriate that someone take over my mod duties. All you have to do is make sure that no spammers or crazy club promoters post in the journal... and if you want to try to inspire some conversation and communication, that's always fun! So let me know if you want to by emailing me at cleanbc0307@yahoo.es (NOT yahoo.com, watch out for that!) and I'll make you the mod!

Apartments [10 Apr 2007|11:37pm]

What have you heard about apartments around BC that you should NOT live in/look at? I remember a post about this awhile ago but it wasn't really relevant at the time. Has anyone heard anything about 1999 or 2001 Comm ave? How about Cleveland circle or Kenrick street?

Anyone looking for people to take their apartment for next year? My sister and I are looking for a 2 bedroom. She's in grad school and I'm (going to be) a junior nursing student.

Help!+ [07 Apr 2007|01:08am]

[ mood | chipper ]

Hi everyone!

I'm currently looking at applying to this college for Grad School so I was wondering if someone could go around campus and take pictures for me. If any of you live in the dorms I would appreciate pictures of the living quarters. Particularly the studio appts and the one bedroom.

Any help you can give me would be very much appreciated. This is a tough decision for me, especially since I live in Georgia and have no way of dropping everything and getting up there. So this small favor would help me out greatly. I'm already getting a packet from them but I just want an insiders look on it.

Any bad things about the college I should know? Pros and cons also are appreciated. Another question is that I can have a car right? If so do you have garage there for cars?

I'll probably think of more but this right now sedates my curiosity!

Thank you again for all your help!

My husband and I are planning to expand our family, so we're selling our much loved Honda Insight and getting another hybrid with a back seat. While I appreciate that this is not a sales group, I figured it was a suitable place to contact folks who might be in the market for an Earthy-Crunchy used car. The included link has photos and details. Car can be viewed in Boston area on request.


Enjoy the lovely Spring!

The Verge: College Music Conference [24 Jan 2007|02:32pm]

Hey there,

I'm posting here to let you all know about a music conference that's in the works right now. It's called THE VERGE, and it's going to take place this spring in Boston from April 19th to 21st. We're going to get 100 bands (local, unsigned, indie, and national acts — of all genres) and have them play showcases in 6 bars and clubs all along Lansdowne St. (if you don't know the city, that's right across the street from Fenway Park). There will also be a conference portion where bands and artists will work directly with students to teach and learn about all different aspects of the music industry. It's going to be an incredible opportunity for both the musicians and students involved.

To make this conference the best it can possibly be, we need a little help, hopefully from some of you wonderful students.

First, if you are in a band or know people in a band, get the word out to them about The Verge. Music acts can apply online via sonicbids.com/thevergeconference. This is going to be an awesome conference to be a part of...most bands will get a handful of bookings on college campuses at the very least, and many more will be able to get enough bookings to provide income for an entire year. Like I said, AWESOME OPPORTUNITY.

Next, if you are a part of or know people who are a part of your college planning board, let them know that they can sign up for the conference at vergeconference.com. It’s a great place to see some awesome bands to play concerts at your school, and most of them come for not a lot of money.

So, if you know musicians or students on your events planning committee, please let them know about The Verge. Thank you!!!

P.S.-If you're interested in hearing more about The Verge, feel free to friend this journal vergeconference or join the community theverge_music.

online course on the Whedonverses [05 Jan 2007|10:12am]

I wanted to let this community know that I will be teaching an online course at the Massachusetts College of Art on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. (Please pardon the self-promotion and any cross-posting, but I thought it was an appropriate announcement for this community.) I’d like to encourage interested members to sign up for some serious fun.

My background: I’ve taught several seminars on the Buffyverse at the Massachusetts College of Art and Emerson College over the past three years. I’ve published two articles on the series at Slayage (which you can find at http://slayageonline.com/ in issues 19 and 22.) I’ve presented articles at a several conferences, including the latest biannual one on the Whedonverses, Charming and Crafty at Harvard University, and for the Popular Culture and American Culture Associations.

What you can expect: The course will give students the rare opportunity study the evolution of a single, long-running series in its entirety. This course will offer you the depth of understanding granted by courses that study the work of a single director. Students will practice a variety of critical approaches on a single subject: genre and auteur theory, cultural studies, and close reading of individual episodes. The goal will be a more complete understanding of the series and its meanings. (Translation: it’s not fanboy, but I do respect the artistry and politics of the series.)

The price of admission: It’s $710. The course materials would be buying a few books, and either renting or purchasing seasons of the series. The start date would be January 29th and it would end on May 7th. You’d get an enriching experience and 3 academic credits.

You can see how to register for “Truths My TV Told Me: Deconstructing Buffy” (CSB 315X-C1) here: http://www.massart.edu/at_massart/academic_prgms/continuing/info/registration/how/

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at my Emerson account, which is David_Kociemba “at” emerson “dot” edu.

prospie ;) [02 Jan 2007|01:41pm]

Hey everyone. I got accepted to BC early action, and unfortunately I am clueless when it comes to applying for financial aid. Our counseling department isn't much help with that either. So I'm in a bit of a tough situation. I missed one of the major deadlines, and I know that we probably won't get any money through FAFSA. The only way I'll be able to go to BC is if I can find a way to get a TON of outside scholarship money, student loans, or if I do the nrotc program. I'm really curious as to whether or not I'll be able to manage any of the above. I don't want to do the rotc program, and I know that if I take out loans I'll be paying them off for the rest of my life. What I'm wondering is if any of you had any success applying for outside scholarships. Is it worth the time and effort? I've been researching a bit and I realize that it is pretty much like applying to college all over again. It's a big deal. But I could use the money. I've been wanted to go to BC for as long as I can remember, and if I don't find a way to get some help then I don't know how I'm going to convince my parents that it is worth going anymore.  Any advice is very much appreciated!

[30 Dec 2006|05:33am]

So, I'll be applying as a transfer to the music program. This is a fairly recent decision, and thus I didn't get to submit a sample tape for the December 1 deadline. Will this hurt my chances? Also, I had a rocky start to college and pulled out of freshman year with a 3.29 gpa. First semester sophomore year (just completed) I had a 3.75 (bringing my cumulative up to to 3.44). I know the mean gpa of accepted students is 3.6, but, all other things considered, will such a dramatic improvement help make up for a not-so-great freshman year? (I have very strong extracurriculars, esp. community service, work experience, etcetera.)

transfer applicant. :] [20 Dec 2006|10:39pm]


I am applying to BC as a transfer student for Fall 2007. I am currently a theatre major at Dean College in Franklin Massachusetts. I was just wondering if there are any theatre majors here that could answer a couple of my questions? How do you like the program? How many shows do you put on per year? You know, theatre kid questions!

Also, I am very interested in what people think of BC. If you're a transfer, how was the transition?

Do any of you know Luke Jorgensen? He was a director of a scene study I did. He's a theatre prof at BC, and a really cool guy!

Any information would be helpful.

ROOM AVAILABLE ON KIRKWOOD RD. [28 Nov 2006|02:47am]

Sorry for the slew of apartment notices, but I'm starting to scramble.

I live on 50 Kirkwood. It is a duplex; my group of friends live on the ground floor and in the fully-finished basement. We are offering a double room. Right now, it is me and my friend, but both of us are going abroad next semester. It easily fits both of us and is a little bigger than your standard BC double. While you would have you own room, you will be sharing the downstairs with only one guy, but otherwise you have a common room, full kitchen and full bath to yourself. There are 5 guys who live upstairs and as I said earlier, 1 guy who lives downstairs and they're all great guys. I don't know the 8 people who live in the top two floors, but we've never had problems with it.

We also have some nice furniture that we would be able to sell for super cheap.

For two people, the rent is $600/month a person with all utilities included, which is really nice for the area and size of the house. If you want to move in and use it as a single (it would be really large for one person), we're fine with that, but the price would be around $700-800/month. We are willing to negotiate on both prices.

50 Kirkwood Apt 1 is a nice, spacious house with two kitchens, two full baths, and large common areas. We're a 3 minute walk to the South Street T/BC bus stop (and about 3 minutes to Moogy's) and about a 10 minute walk to Lower Campus. It's already fully furnished and you would only have to pay for a bed, dresser, and desk, if you need one (again, we would be willing to sell all these for super cheap). You can contact me at endlessdave (@) gmail (.) com or just respond to this post. And if you know anyone looking for a place, be sure to tell them about us. I can provide photos if need be.

Thanks and have a nice day.

$675 / 1br - Room in Brighton - Available Mid-May/June '07 - December '07 [27 Nov 2006|12:04pm]

$675 / 1br - Room in Brighton - Available Mid-May/June '07 - December '07

This is a gorgeous furnished bedroom in a two-bedroom apartment in Brighton. The apartment is located right around the corner from the Green B-Line, a ten minute walk from the C line and Washington Square, a ten minute walk to Brighton Center, a ten minute ride to BC or a 15-20 minute ride to BU. It is a clean, quiet building with laundry in the basement. The building is also conveniently located across the street from the Brighton Whole Foods supermarket.

The apartment itself is fully furnished/decorated, with a foyer, bathroom, large living/dining room with bay windows, and a kitchen. Heat and hot water is included in the rent. Basic cable and high-speed (wireless) internet come to about $60/month (you are welcome to get a better cable package for your stay if you'd like), and electricity can be between $40-$90 a month (more expensive in the summer depending how many fans/if the AC is used).

My roommate will also be subletting his room for the summer and likely the fall, so if you have a friend you'd like to sublet with, let me know and we can arrange something. Otherwise, I do not know who his subletter will be. If he does not find a subletter, his portion of the rent will still be covered.

I am looking for a responsible person to rent out my room. The ability to respect the space, respect the neighbors, respect the furniture and household items, and pay rent on time is extremely important.

Also, you must be a cat (or general animal) lover and be willing to possibly take care of a young, playful cat (depending on whether or not my boyfriend can take her in). Another cat, fish, or small, caged animal would be okay, but dogs are a no (sorry!).

Please contact me [either here or at kassia dot karr at gmail dot com] if you are interested or would like more information or pictures. I look forward to hearing from you!

Active Hillel Community at BC? [15 Oct 2006|02:51pm]

Hi! I've just started looking at colleges (I'm a junior), and I've been looking into BC. It seems to bethe size I want, nice location, good programs/departments, etc., so I just have one quick question:

I know that BC is affiliated with the Jesuit faith, and I was wondering how much this plays into the BC community. When I went on the BC website, a lot of it seemed to talk about following in the "Jesuit tradition" and often made reference to its connection to the Jesuit faith. Is there such a strong Jesuit emphasis within the actual campus (both in the student body and just the overall feeling of the school). Are most students Catholic, Jesuit, etc.?

I ask because I'm Jewish and was wondering if I'd feel uncomfortable at a school which lies so heavily in the Jesuit faith. Does anyone know how many Jewish students there are (not a specific number, persay, but a general estimation), and if Hillel is active? If anyone could tell me about BC's Hillel, I'd really appreciate it (just in general, what the Jewish community is like).

Thank you very much!

Bike for sale - $40 [03 Aug 2006|07:02pm]

I have a Univega Activa that's about 10 years old but is in decent condition. It's a little rusty in areas, but it has been kept inside for the last few years. It rides well.

Brand new tires (June 2006) and recently adjusted brakes.

There's a small metal piece that fell off one of the brake handles, so the rear brake is currently not in operation, but it would be very easy and cheap to fix. I don't have a car, so getting it fixed is more of a hassle than it's worth -- I was only using it for a summer internship.

Here's a picture of it.

Here's a picture of the piece that is missing.

E-mail me at dunncm(at)bc.edu for more info or if you'd like a bigger picture. It's also posted on Craig's List.

I'll be on campus for the rest of the summer and the fall, so if you would like to buy the bike, you can pick it up here.

Only forty dollars!

Hello fellow eagles :-P

I have a nasty little C- on my transcript from Financial Accounting, and I'd love to be able to make that disappear if at all possible. A lot of my friends have been able to retake courses at their schools in order to change their grade. Does anyone know if that's a possibility at BC? 

For the purpose of grad school, where I'll need to take financial accounting, should I retake the course again even if it doesn't replace my old grade? I'm hoping to go to UMass to get dual MS in Sports Management/MBA.

Interested in an internship? [17 Jul 2006|12:05am]

I am looking for someone to replace me in an internship in Copley. It is with an asset management firm called Upland Capital (UplandCapital.net) for people interested in finance and accounting. Being a CSOM person or not doesn't matter (I'm not and it was a plus in the interview)...so obviously I am not a finance or accounting major.
A plus: if you're already in the Boston area. Then we can get an interview set up and you can be trained by me before I leave.

What you will be doing:
Accounting and finance!! hah. Basically daily bookkeeping. Posting of records, stuff like that. A basic knowledge of accounting is a MUST, ie. Principles of Accounting course. MUST have a B average or better at BC. Junior status is desired.
You will be working directly with the accounting manager and this will provide great experience. I've been able to sit in on meetings and discuss the proper way to account for certain situations.

Please respond to this or e-mail me at dicenskr@bc.edu for more info or with questions.

And I'm gonna xpost this. Sorry. buuuuuut someone needs to replace me.

here's the deal. i'm a prospie, of course, and i've been really interested in BC for a while now.

frankly, i have my rational college choices narrowed down to the following: Hampshire College, Sarah Lawrence College, Eugene Lang College, Bennington College, Bard College, Skidmore College, and Boston College (as my reach).

If ANYONE can provide any advice on the general merits of any of these schools and how they compare with Boston College, I would appreciate it so much. I know I'm kind of pushing the content rules but I'm a little stressed over how quickly this summer is going by for me and how fast application time is approaching.

english invasion.....again? [20 May 2006|04:27pm]

i know this is the boston college community, but i checked out the actual boston livejournal community and there seems to be no one who comments on it so..i thought id try this.

myself and a mate are comin over to boston at the end of july from manchester (england), just wondered on any ideas of places to go for nightlife? i gather there is plenty of irish bars, lol.

also any decent sports bars? that maybe show football (soccer) as the season kicks off beginning of august and we wouldnt mind keepin up with preceedings.

ANNNNNNND, finally. if we can get tickets to red sox games easily? or are they mostly sell outs every time?

Whether or not you agree with the war, is it really fair to have a speaker that makes a decent portion of the student body want to scream during their ceremony.

I'm asking $20 for it...which is actually less than I paid since I accidentally threw out my BC ID wih the news paper I was reading while I waited in line to buy it :-) (gotta love paying $20 for new IDs)

If you are interested, please IM me at ssecnirpc or email me at marchime@bc.edu

You'd have to pick it up from me at Upper Campus, because I have a HUGE test to study for!

Well, my college choice is essentially down to Cornell and B.C., pending suitable financial aid.

So, the biggest factor on the scales right now:

How does the Catholic-college demographic fit into B.C.'s social life/academics? Are the politics conservative? Would a relatively liberal, non-religious, unwealthy student fit in?

Can a story change the world? [03 Apr 2006|11:20am]

[ mood | impressed ]

In the Spring of 2003, three young Americans from California left in search of such a story. What they found was a tragedy that disgusted and inspired them. Come, and discover the unseen.

This film is fast paced, with an MTV beat, made for the young and the young at heart. This wonderfully crappy rock-and-roll documentary is something truly unique. To see Africa through young eyes is funny, and heart breaking, quick, and informative - all in the very same breath.

See this film, you will be forever changed.

Invisible Children has been shown to the United Nations Association, The Carter Center and at The Capitol Building in Washington D.C. Footage has been shown on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, and the National Geographic Channel.

Hey everyone, I just got accepted to the class of 2010! So pretty soon I'm going to have to make a decision between Boston College and a few other schools, so I have some questions...

Basically, I doubt I'll get any money from FAFSA, but is there any other financial aid available at BC? I mean, could they possibly put together some sort of aid package/payment plan for my family, like loans, grants, etc? Does anyone have experience with this kind of thing?

In making my final decision money is going to be a big issue and will most likely be one of the deciding factors for what school I attend, so this is pretty important to me.

I'd appreciate it if anyone could give me some advice! Thanks!
