What are the academics like at your school?
I love my major, but I hate the business of it, so I won't be doing advertising after college. The professors are really great at bringing real-world senarios in to the classroom, and are wonderful at helping students find jobs, internships, etc. They are really dedicated to their students. It is a little cut-throat, but the business of advertising is, so that's to be expected. They definitely have the resources available -- in terms of clubs, professors, workshops, career centers and the like --- to help you become successful.
SMG professors and students are all very stuck up about their program. The professors tell the students that SMG stands for "Sex Money and Greed" (it really means School of Management). They consider themselves better than the rest of the University, even though they're NOT the best program at BU. The College of Communication, School of Hospitality Administration, the College of Fine Arts, many programs in the Sargent College, BioMed in Engineering, and various other programs are all considered some of the best programs of their kind, while SMG is just breaking in to the top 30 management programs. They really need to get over themselves.
Also grade deflation is way over-exaggerated. It may happen once in a while, but it's definitely not a rampant problem like some students complain it is. Everyone comes in to BU as an A student and not everyone can leave that way. BU puts tons of resources at your finger tips, you just have to take the initiative to use them. College isn't suppose to be easy!
