What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

It's honestly really difficult to answer this question because I absolutely love my experience at BU so far! However, if I had to point out the worst thing, it would be the cost of living. Boston is so expensive!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is garenteed that you will lose your clothes in the Boston University fitness center if it is a branded named jacks. The managers at the BU fitness center never smiles. (That always look angry, it is like you own them 1 million dollars ) If you buy a fitness class pass, I will find yourself many times go there in vain because the classes are many times canceled

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have wanted to become a medical practitioner since I went to Awasa, the countryside of Ethiopia, with my mom and came across women that did not have the appropriate dental care. My mother was a registered dental assistant and felt a responsibility to help the women with their dental care. I was awe stricken because the gratitude that the women showed my mother was heart-felt and sincere. I knew that this is the kind of affect that I would like to have on people. As I began my college research process, I came across Boston University. The way in which this university prepares students for the medical field was very enthralling. The most intriguing aspect of this university was the 7-year accelerated medical program. The excellent support from attentive and considerate faculty, initially ignited my desire for a proper education at Boston University. Another reason as to why BU is a good fit for me is the Division I Women's Basketball. I have always loved sports and I have played basketball all throughout high school, so even if I am not good enough to make the team, I would still support and continue to be captivated by the games being played. All in all, I believe that BU's medical program, the faculty's dedication for student success, and the athletics environment at Boston University are the reasons why BU is a good fit for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

An academically rigorous school, with a very expensive standard for cost of living on campus. The campus is too large to feel like a true college campus or build a sense of community. It's hard to secure adequate financial aid that doesn't involve all members of the family going into debt.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school. The education is amazing and the professors are highly qualified to teach. Your peers are also intelligent and you can have great conversations with them. There's also a club for everyone, there are so many on campus groups that you will eventually find somewhere you love. And if you don't, the resources are available for you to create a club or organization! You'll find your people eventually, it's hard to be lonely here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

BU is a large university with smaller schools & colleges that give it the small school feel while still feeling like there is a lot going on. The location is ideal in the middle of Boston, however you will not get the "college campus" experience as it is right in the city. Overall good experience and good professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

What sets Boston University apart from the rest is not only the simplicity of the campus (as it spans over the one main road of Commonwealth Avenue), but also the caliber of academics. I am a student of the College of General Studies (matriculating into the Questrom School of Business), and have seen this trait amongst all of my professors as they are thorough with course materials, but even more so when interacting with students outside the classroom (especially with office hours). Professors care about student success and it is paramount for the overall success that is found at BU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is amazing. I have found many extracurricular activities I may not have planned on joining. However, there is such opportunity to discover new things. In addition, the city itself is unforgettable. Discovering Boston is an experience like no other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great school for the city lover. While it's not a traditional campus, it certainly is beautiful, and downtown is just a train ride away. Academically, Boston University is a great place to learn with moderate class sizes. There's a student group for everyone to join, making it a great place for every young adult.
