Great school, truly underrated

Aug 13 2013Other
Great school, truly underrated. Everyone I know who graduates from here (and took their major/education seriously; students who were excited to work in their chosen field and acquire successful futures, all have amazing jobs now.

Honestly, the negative comments on this, or any other review site are merely contributed by those who have never had to work for anything or are only in college because their wealthy families wanted to ship them off to a private school.

To be truly successful here, at this college, you must be serious about what you plan to do in life and you must use the immense resources/connections that are offered by the college.SOOOO, BOOM!

Bay State College is a scam

Nov 25 2013Other
Bay State College is a scam. They put on a show just to get you there, then treat you like shit once your in. I've gotten yelled at by my advisor for no reason...the professors are just crazy and you're stuck with them for lots of classes. there is a lack of class times and an electives to chose from. I dormed my first year...big mistake. I thought that living in a great city with a group of girls would be fun. I'm friendly and pretty much get along with everyone but most girls at BSC are stuck up and snobs. The dorms have sooooo much drama. The few guys that are there think their the shit and it's f*cking disgusting. Typical "colleg guys" that try to get with every girl. No campus or anything to do at all, which is sad since we're in Boston. BSC kids would rather go home every single weekend or sit in their dorm room and gossip then say explore the city. Literally I know so many people that have never taken the train...most students don't leave the back bay unless their going home. Don't get me wrong i've made some great friends here (they all transferred) and had some good times. however the atmosphere is terrible. Cliques and immature students, TERRIBLE cafeteria food and environment, the dorms are falling apart, the fashion department takes its self way to seriously. everyone thinks their gonna graduate a celebrity. get over it.

if you are considering in enrolling at Bay

if you are considering in enrolling at Bay State, make sure it's for the right reasons. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. If you don't mind living in an extremely small dorm room with up to 6 girls then go for it. I got lucky with a double but it was meant for a single because there is no space what so ever.

The location is in downtown Boston, so if that's where you want to live then apply, but be warned that there isn't any campus life at all...so shopping and hanging out with the people who live on campus is your limits. Comm Ave is the "outside high school hallway" because you will literally see the same people like high school all the time.

It is a college where the majority of students leave every weekend to go home.
Remember this is a FOR PROFIT PRIVATE COLLEGE which means that the college or "business" wants your money more than helping you with your education. The computers are outdated. If it had more to offer then the price wouldn't be that bad. Do some research on FOR PROFIT colleges, so you don't get screwed out of money.

The food here is gross it's literally the same pasta, pizza, and spicy rice every single day so go out to restaurants or even burger king if you want a more appealing meal.

There is no campus, that's just fancy talk for dorms & classrooms placed in the city. No students are allowed to hangout in the comm ave mall after sunset and half way through the fall the sunsets at about 3:30/4 so what are you supposed to do then? I feel like i'm being babysat.

A few of the cafeteria workers made me feel very uncomfortable and i am not the only one to say so. If you are white then you are pretty much a minority, but hey at least it's diverse...

As far as the programs go, make sure your a die- hard for whatever major you choose; yup that's right you choose a major right off the bat so if your still in high school and aren't sure if you want to major in something right away go to community college and save some money.

The surrounding city's fun but once snow hits the ground nobody does anything really.Gooooodluck with college hunting; hope this helps!
