Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

Some. About 60/40 girls to guys, and most of those ladies are cookie cutter. Rather unfortunate.

What are the academics like at your school?

Again! depends what you want to do. Acting and College of Fine Arts stuff is hard as hell, but really prestigious. I was in the College of General Studies, which has the stigma of stupid kids on campus, and that sucked. Hard. Really boring classes, one good professor. The COM school is fun though, definitely give that a chance if you can. There are fun classes here, but you have to have the right professors.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Programming Council is the biggest club on campus, definitely join if you get the chance! That's where I met some cool kids that were progressive and open minded! Just join stuff. Best advice I can give.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Best thing about BU? You're in boston. It's a lot of ladies! When you tell people you go to BU they're indifferent usually. Depends on which program you're in. Great acting school, great COM school, some schools like CGS really aren't fun though. A lot of parties, which is awesome because there are so many women everywhere. No sense of community really because it's such a city school.
