What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great school with lots of opportunities for students of all kinds. It is a very diverse campus and has a very welcoming atmosphere for everyone. it is a very academically focused university, although the students and staff make sure that everyone has a good time and enjoys their college experience while they work towards their goals. The students and staff are all very friendly and encouraging, and it is clear that people are happy to help if it is needed. This is a great environment for students to thrive while they earn their degrees, experience college life, and work their way towards being independent, successful people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

BU encompasses the entirety of Commonwealth Avenue - or CommAve, as the students like to call it. BU is great, however, CommAve has got to be the most dangerous road I've ever encountered in my life. At any given moment, there are cars, the subway, bikers, and pedestrians, all trying to cross the same street at the same time. It's so dangerous. Other than that, BU provides ample opportunities for student engagement and learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is honestly a fantastic school. The overall attitude of the entire place is just good vibes all around. It's pricey, but that might be the only real downside of the entire University. Once you're there, learning right in the heart of Boston, all the money seems worth it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is good for people who are good at finding their tribe. It's very hard to feel socially comfortable if you don't join club and stay in constant contact with new friends. If you are in the science department as a chemistry, biology or any other hard science, get ready because professors make it hard to do well unless you are constantly studying. just pay attention to how things are weighed in your classes and get a phone number from at least one person in every class so you can ask them questions and study together. Get to know professors throughout the year, so it won't be awkward when you have to ask for a recommendation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice school with many research and academic opportunities. Most professors are available during office hours and via email. The on-campus housing and dining halls have much to be desired, especially for the cost. The campus is extremely pretty during the fall and the spring and most of the students are extremely nice. It's a great college situated directly in the middle of Boston.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I come from a small town in Georgia and Boston University is about as different as different could be from everything I had experienced previously and I love it. There is always something to do on campus and the inner city is just a T ride or a quick walk away. Social scene aside, the academics and professors at Boston University are incredible and truly dedicate themselves to helping their students learn.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will be attending Boston University in the fall, and I am super excited! The school is amazing from what I have experienced and from the conversations I have had with current students and faculty, even those not on the admissions staff. The campus is super accessible and easy to navigate, it's extremely hard to get lost and most things are centrally located. The university itself has a ton of resources for students in terms of academics (well-stocked libraries, active advisors, experienced professors), recreation (big sports culture, club sports, cool music scene, a TON of student-led groups), and job experience (internships and campus work opportunities) both on-campus, in the flourishing city of Boston, and even abroad (the study abroad program has so many countries to travel to and you can intern abroad too)!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I visited the campus, I was very impressed by the campus setting in the city and the friendliness. The 5 dining halls and the mass amounts of options to choose from make the campus more comforting. I'm very excited to become a part of the campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great place to get your degree, but prepare to be somewhat miserable during a couple years because it takes quite a while to find your niche. The diversity is not great, and the winters are horrible, but it's worth the learning experience.
