I graduated in May with a double concentrationQuite BrightFinance
I graduated in May with a double concentration in finance and marketing. Coming from a top tier high school with good grades, Boston University was originally my "safety," yet I look back with pride and satisfaction on what I got out of it! I have no major complaints about the School of Management - the curriculum is challenging, students are bright, and even the building is the nice. The curriculum is very team-oriented - it truly transformed me into a better team member. However, I can't speak for the other majors or schools at BU. I've had some really good (anthropology & psychology) and really bad classes (philosophy 101) in the School of Arts.

Advice: If you DON'T like to work with people, the School of Management is not for you.

Question
BU is a great place.BrightPhysical Therapy/Exercise Science
BU is a great place. You have to understand that there are 15000 students here so of course it may seem big and daunting, but it doesn't have to be. Your floor is a great place to make friends. I made some of my best friends on my freshman year floor. The school runs well enough...no where is going to be perfect. there are so many great people and opportunities here ar BU that everyday I am reminded how right I was to choose BU.
