What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is full of plenty of opportunities for a variety of majors. Even though my major is quite competitive, there are still plenty of options to take advantage of including research, clubs, and even off campus opportunities. The campus is beautiful and in the heart of Boston. It's a great atmosphere and I hope to achieve a lot in my four years here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Boston University is a great research institution with lots of diversity. There are many different kinds of people who come from different places and have different interests. There are also a lot of opportunities to do research, join clubs and organizations or sports. A lot of resources are available for academic and career planning so make use of it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you're ready to get a taste of the real world and all the good and bad things about it, go to BU. This place isn't about having fun, it's about getting a good education and outcompeting your fellow students. The arrogance in terms of most students, faculty and all that is top notch. The word I'd best use to describe BU is connections. Sure, for some you can make them, but the people who go to BU for the most part already have them and a solid amount try to just coast off that. It's an international school which is great but due to the high tuition the majority of students are pretty preppy and arrogant. Not having a campus is great, unless you're hoping to garner any sense of school spirit. Not that you can't have good times, you can have fun, make friends and memories, yet if you're a decent outgoing individual I'd say you can do that at any college. As long as I get my degree I'll be happy with it, but it sure as hell isn't worth the time or money in my mind when you could go to a equally good school that costs 1/2 or 2/3 as much that actually is fun.

I am really happy that I decided to attend Boston University. It provides me with a lot of academic and extracurricular opportunities. I've met a lot of different kinds of people here and become exposed to all sorts of backgrounds and interests. Boston is a great city in itself, especially with all the nearby stores and colleges.

Amazing college experience. Nothing like Boston.

An amazing place. They have a great endowment and get phenomenal Professors. BU has something for everyone. No one knows your business. Love that. Very sophisticated university. Alum. include Martin Luther King to Howard Stern to Julianne Moore. Seriously, I had Elie Wiesel as a professor and Howard Zinn too. Many moons ago. My experience made me a much smarter and stronger person.

You are paying for what you get

The price is ridiculous, and they aren't too generous with their financial aid, but the opportunities are endless here. There are amazing people surrounding you (both students and professors) and the city provides lots of opportunity. The academics are rigorous.
