What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College is a great school! It is renowned for its great education, vast resources, and astoundingly beautiful architecture. My personal favorite things about the university were the high quality of the food served at the different cafeterias, and the numerous student groups on campus (since we do not have fraternities/sororities on campus, this is where I really found my tight group of friends).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Can sometimes feel homogenous, many wealthy students attend this school and can make you feel a little out of place. Overall, though, the education is great and students take academics very seriously. I am a white student, so I cannot speak to the experience of minorities, but I have heard from peers that it can feel somewhat homogenous in a racial sense as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fantastic place to learn, grow and make lifelong friendships. Boston College is like an onion - the longer you are there, the more layers and the more value you find. As a freshman, it can be a bit challenging to make friends (some say this is because of the lack of Greek life). I think this almost universal struggle helps people become more independent and truly find the friends they belong with. The housing can be a big source of contention - you have to break up into set groups and enter into a lottery to get housing in a range of desired dorms. Nevertheless, a bond is created where ever you are placed. The sports culture is great - football season in particular. People can party as much or as little as they want - there are groups for every kind of person.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before I visited Boston College, I was not even sure I wanted to apply. I knew that it is a great school, but they did not offer many scholarships. I did not think I would be worth my time to apply; however, after I visited the campus, I instantly fell in love. The campus is gorgeous, the academics are fantastic and the staff is great. I definitely could see myself going there, and it has become one of my favorite colleges.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College is a terrific school that has provided me with so many great opportunities. I have loved every minute of my time at BC, the people are great, the classes are intellectually challenging, and it is a really fun place to be a student. It also helps having a great city like Boston at a very accessible distance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A lackluster school that feebly attempts to climb to the ranks of Ivy Leagues. Asides from being in the New England area, this college lacks the livelihood of campus life, well balanced academics, and diversity in the student body. Academics are intentionally rigged so that an A is unattainable and all scores must be curved. The “large” campus area is misleading since the school is made up of 3 different campuses all separate from each other. The faculty have little care for its students unless their parents are significant benefactors. Incidents such as rape and sexual assault are all too easily swept under the rug to maintain the ideal “Jesuit” image of the school. Rampant behavioral problems of the students go unnoticed as the school suffers from racist propaganda such as the “Black lives don’t matter.” movement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Choosing to attend Boston College is one of the best decisions I have made. The curriculum is challenging, but engaging, and the campus offers a friendly and open environment. Moreover, its close proximity to the city of Boston is a benefit that can not be overestimated. I love the school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College: Not Harvard, but not BU. The school loves to propagate elitism by having outrageous food prices, tuition, and housing costs. If you want you and your parents to get sucked dry of everything you both own, then apply! Don’t recommend attending here if you’re household income is less than $250,000. If you are poor, it shows, so good luck fitting in. And despite what you may read online from students of wealthy demographics, BC is not a welcoming place. Every year there is a racist or homophobic instance on campus. This year, a boy wrote racial slurs all over a lounge wall and furniture.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston College provides a great educational and extracurricular atmosphere. Academics are the main focus of the school with the business school especially providing students with an abundance of opportunities and helpful tips on how to succeed in post-graduation life. Internships are readily available and professors have the necessary experience to connect classroom lessons to applicable real-life situations. Along with academics, there are hundreds of student organizations for students to participate in. Personally, I am in cultural clubs, athletic clubs, academic clubs, service organization clubs, and art clubs. As a result of these clubs, I have been able to meet a variety of different students and make strong and valuable connections that have enhanced my overall experience at Boston College. If I had to give one piece of advice to incoming freshmen, I would strongly recommend that they join multiple student organizations. A religious atmosphere is present but is definitely not overbearing. Students are required to take philosophy and theology classes but professors rarely share their own ideas in order to leave out personal biases. Overall, Boston College has provided me with an excellent start to my college career. I have been able to step outside my comfort zone and expand my academic horizons to help make me a more personable and experienced citizen of our world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I could not have picked a better college. The people at BC are some of the most authentic, genuine, caring, and intellectual people I've ever met. We are close to Boston for lots of cool opportunities but also have the big sports culture and academics, without giant class sizes! 10/10
