| BU ROCKS! Period. |
ACADEMICS: Academically, I'm getting a great education. The School of Management is a really progressive business school. It teaches a lot of teamwork and ethics, and I feel like in my two years here I have already learned more than I would have somewhere else. I have also had some of the most AMAZING professors both in business school and in the liberal arts school- the faculty is amazing.
REPUTATION: The school has a great reputation throughout the entire country- especially if you are in business, engineering, or communications. The business school is probably 2nd in terms of reputation only to Harvard in the area- better than BC, Northeastern, Bentley and even Babson. Rankings improve each year, and the school has a huge alumni network. If you are thinking about grad school, this school prepares you well, and top grad schools knows this and want BU grads.
SOCIAL LIFE / PEOPLE: There are so many different types of poeple here- all races, cultures, sexual orientations- and everyone is accepting (It is SO much different than our cross-town rivals in Chestnut Hill, where everyone looks the same...). Socially, I love it. There is a huge amount of independance in terms of how you choose to have fun. This is not a typical party school- but it is easy to find a party around campus or at other nearby schools if that's your scene. Hockey games are AWESOME, and the 4-way Boston rivalry between BU, BC, Northeastern and Harvard really can bring BU-ers together. And of course, there's Boston, and BU is right in middle of the city. Plenty of restaraunts and clubs and city life.I have to say, some of these postings about BU are exceptionally negative... yes the guest policy can be a pain, yes there is a lot of red tape... but what do you expect from a huge private university in the middle of a city? BU is what you make of it. And if you want to learn a lot and have fun too, this is a great place to be.

| Boston University is an incredible place. Academically, the quality of education I am receiving is extremely high. The School of Management is a highly respected business school and it prestige and reputation continues to grow. The building is beautiful, the coursework is challenging, and I am learning more about business in my freshman year than many other students at other schools. Overall, the University itself is a great place to live and study. While it lacks a "traditional" campus, the urban layout of the school is still aesthetically pleasing, and you truly feel as if you are part of Boston, not merely an isolated bubble inside. There is always something to do, whether it is a campus event, hanging out in the city, or partying either at BU or any of the surrounding colleges. Transportation is incredibly cheap and easy. Make sure you visit the campus though. If you do not want to live in an urban, busy environment, you might not like it. But if you want great academics, an urban campus, and a world class college city at your doorstep, this school is for you. |
