Horrible school! An absoluteBrightEnglish
Horrible school! An absolute cess pool of preppy little bitches who wouldn't know hard work if it jumped up and bit them on the ass. Some of the most close-minded cowards you will ever meet. If I had to choose between suicide and BC, I'd take death. DO NOT EVER COME HERE!!

There's no way toBrightEconomics
There's no way to describe the how much you fall in love with a school like Boston College. Only fellow alumni and students can understand. Trust me: the Jesuits know their stuff.

Question
Ah Boston College.Quite BrightFinance
Ah Boston College. What can I say about you? Let's start at the beginning.
Freshman year: if you're a guy, plan on either having a freshman party in your room or getting kicked out of any upperclassman party i.e. the Mods (senior housing). Girls, on the other hand, can pretty much get in anywhere, assuming you're halfway decent looking. And fortunately, most girls at BC are. Let's face it, if you come to BC and dont drink, you'll be a bit lost. But this is how it is at EVERY school, outside of BYU. Even though it is illegal, the kids still do it. And i'm sure if your parents knew how much alcohol gets comsumed per weekend they would pass out. Even getting written up with an alc violation is like a right of passage. I enjoyed my freshman year, but it didnt contain nearly as many big blowout parties that I thought would happen every night in college. The work was fairly easy overall

Sophomore year: I promist, things get better. You're circle of friends grows. If youre in the 75% who gets to live on Lower Campus you're life has improved dramatically. Don't let anyone tell you different: if you get stuck living on College Road you're life will be just like senior year. Except that now you can actually get into parties in Walsh where you're friends live. The schoolwork actually starts to get hard during year 2. Not impossible, but you have to start putting in real work. At least I had to in the Carroll School of Management. A&S is pretty easy all the way through, depending on the major. Junior Year: Things get immeasurably better. Especially if you turn 21 early in the year. But even if you dont things are more fun. You can throw real parties in your off-campus residence. You know more people. Freshman girls look up to you. They travel in packs, so if you know one, hopefully they bring their 20 hot friends along to hang out too. The classes start to get much harder, at least in CSOM. You have to really put in the work and study to keep your grades up. And kids in the business school work really hard to get those great jobs on Wall Street, so you best keep that GPA above a 3.6 at least to get some good interviews. Internship hunting can be stressful. Everyone talks about it. The interviews themselves can be really tough. After all, you're paying 50k a year to go to this school, and unless you get a good job out of school it was totally pointless. You can go to a lesser school, drink everyday, and have a 4.0. We study business at BC to get a high flying job, end of story. All the good financial firms recruit here. Try and get a job with them, they're great places to start a career. To be blunt, if youre beginning job out of school doesn't pay at least 60k a year to start you wasted your money by paying for BC. Prepare to work for it, but if you work hard and do well in interviews, you can have a very nice job right out of school.
