What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is an urban campus surrounded by restaurants, stores and cafes, which makes it one of the most convenient locations to live in. There are T stops throughout the campus for students who take the train and a free BU bus to help you get to classes. I love that there isn't a huge emphasis on greek life or sports culture, and that there's tons of different organizations a student can get involved in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Boston University has a great support system, but due to its large student body, it is difficult to get the personal attention from professors. For example, when asking for recommendations, it is difficult because professors do not get to know their students on a personal level where this is possible. Although that is the case, a lot of students are still able to find their place and succeed in the long run.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great school that offers many opportunities for people who really want to learn. Boston University offers a great community for the diversity of people. There are several clubs that help new people to integrate. In addition, the rooms are reliable and comfortable for students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University has many clubs and organizations. Students have a competitive academic environment, and many resources to help them express themselves artistically. I wish the financial aid office was better at communication, though. There is a dire need for more diverse students. BU lacks students of color, as do most universities located in MA. Greek life is not overbearing, and there is not a huge party culture. Finding jobs in the Boston area is easy, though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University offers multiple opportunities in diverse fields of art, athletics, and academics due to its immense size. There are a wide variety of extracurricular clubs and food services to choose from. However, the school's large student population also increases the difficulty to strengthen school spirit; the school lacks a sense of community and spirit in school athletics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a student in the College of Communication, I think I made the right choice in coming to Boston University. My main problem with the university is the practice of grade deflation. Most students do not receive the grades they have earned because professors are known to give out low grades and keep their class averages much lower than they should be. Overall, however, the quality of education is very high, and the professors are, for the most part, great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University was a corrupt university when I went there. There's a rumor going on that the university was stealing money from poor students. Allegedly, they were giving them bad grades so they wouldn't have to pay their scholarships after 1 year. Also, BU has a huge hazing and sexual assault problem, which the school hid. They refused many of the students and student-athletes involved. The school will always protect its wealthy students. Many of them pay other students such as a Shalin Bhandari, Arjun Patel of E&Y, Parth Bhardwaj, Suraj Kaneria, and Merrick Levy. The school knew about these guys taking exams but did nothing to punish them. They even cheated off each other. The school once again does nothing to help innocent students against people cheating and hazing. They act like it is not their problem.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

BU sucks if you come from a poor family and it's gonna be very tough for you to survive for four years living in Boston. The student service here is so bad. And the BU Center for Career Development is the worse, it's like you're asking for dating advice from someone who's never been in a relationship. Totally disappointed plus the sense of community here is ain't strong

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great School. It was my top choice and I made the right one. The professors are great, school heads and other helpful faculty/staff are very accessible and approachable. I'm always so excited to hear about when people are joining the terrier family and recommend it when I can ... I do wish we had football though.
