| If you want to attend BU for the sake of having a fancy degree and wasting money, then I am confident you would have no second thought of coming here. If you actually want an education and to go through a period of personal growth(as typical colleges offer) please please please do not come here. I knew before coming here that BU would not provide me a typical college experience, but I did not brace myself for an education quality that is poorer than that of my mediocre public high school's. This is only my first semester here and I already feel like I have digressed academically. Classes deflate grades and it is not because the classes are rigorous. In fact, they're a joke, and this is evident in the low grades students receive because they are not taught the material. BU is purely corporate and will suck you dry from charging you to participate in community service to parent's weekend events. But if you choose to work out in the nice gym every day and become unproductive like the majority of students at this school feel free. |

| The Boston University Engineering Department is a complete joke. Professors here are downright awful. Labs are a shit show with TAs that will provide you with no help. It seems as if the department is an old boys club filled with incompetent professors who have no idea how to educate. Grading is done mostly by undergraduates and mistakes happen all. the. time. Professors here are way behind the times and do not use technology in the classroom and have no idea how to use blackboard. Tests and assignments are not overly difficult, but the general terribleness of the engineering dept is enough to make you want to jump out a window. Overall:|
1. Engineering professors at BU give the worst imaginable lectures. There really is no point in attending lectures.
2. Engineering labs are a shit show with zero preparation and zero organization on the part of professors/TAs (making labs the most frustrating things on earth)
3. Professors have no idea how to efficiently use blackboard or other educational technology (something most schools have successfully been using for over 10 years)DO NOT STUDY ENGINEERING AT BOSTON UNIVERSITY. Don't throw $45,000/year down the drain for a terrible quality of education.
