    Great School. The school needs fewer construction projects and a greater focus on giving students the time (minus the job load to pay for school) to learn. ...Continue reading

    just recently graduated. Some professors are awesome. Most of them tend to be. Unfortunately administration is awful and you get the feeling they really don't care about their students, they're just out to make profit.

    I transferred from Harvard after freshman year because the school didn't offer as many majors and minors as BU. Although Harvard definitely has the name and prestige, I found BU to be a better fit for me. But I will say this, BU's science courses are much harder than many of my classes at Harvard (not all, but many). I love it here! Great choices with classes and great professors. Only thing I wish I could change is the food! ...Continue reading

    I hate it here at BU, it's the worst. Majority of professors that I encountered were indifferent and would grade on arbitrary curves that scaled up or down in some cases. Food is horrendous, housing is pretty bad except for StuVi, which costs even more. Look elsewhere for college. ...Continue reading

    BU is ultimately what you make of it. I'm having an amazing time and have met some awesome people, but I can see how people have a hard time socially here. It's easy to get lost in the big city, but once you find your niche, I promise that you won't regret going to BU. The professors are amazing, and the academics are rigorous. ...Continue reading

    transferred out after my freshman year--too much money for subpar academics (not enough office hours given, teachers very unavailable), not a collaborative environment, and to fit in socially you either have to be a part of greek, theatre, film, acapella, or sports. I've been here for 3 years now, joined multiple clubs, and still haven't found my way. It's also ridiculously hard to get an A, and you have to sacrifice your social life and sanity to do it, which I did--not sure if it is worth it. ...Continue reading

    Dining halls: Bay State West Warren People tend to think they'll meet a lot of friends at Warren (esp freshman) but DO NOT choose warren if you don't want noise and if you want better food. Hockey team is good! I don't really like hockey though. Tons of on campus clubs. Most campus-wide events occur towards the beginning of the semesters. Lots of free events though. Always wished there were more study spaces open to undergrads around finals period. Great dining and custodial staff! So lovely! BU is a very very difficult school. Expect to have a GPA lower than your friends at other universities while not only learning more then them but also working 10x harder. Also BU really treats its students like a corporation. You are a number. But with this said if you take the initiative there is so much opportunity at BU. ...Continue reading

    Boston is a great area for networking and opportunities, you should be open to talking to new people. I like most of the people, the place, and the experience.

    Friends seem to be having a better time at other Universities I think I'll be transferring. They give really low grade thought. The worst thing about BU is all those offices so many school employees no one cares about you or your problems even though it was their job to care, and they can really screw up. They would apologize, but it is your life that's ruined. They don't care. People are rude and disrespectful and basically you can only get by if you're rich and extroverted. ...Continue reading
