I am in engineering, I cannot speak for the other colleges because engineering sort of isolates itself away from CAS or CGS or SMG, etc.I am majoring in biomedical engineering. It is easily the most difficult major in the most difficult college at BU. (This website should really have an option for biomed btw) I get up at 8 am and do not come back until 8 or 9 pm. The I do homework or participate in clubs. 95% of my time is spent thinking about being an engineer and excelling in my classes. The people here are a bit arrogant, but generally friendly (I am from the midwest, so we are a bit warmer). The professors here are engaging. They try hard to get you to come to office hours and develop a deeper interest in the class. I have never had a professor not have time to discuss anything I want with me. For academics and my future plans, I visit two to three advisers, who always seem happy to see me and know my name and schedule. They give advice based on what would make me not only a good engineer, but happy. Is BU ridiculously hard and puts too much on grade inflation? Yes. Have I cried and felt depressed because of homework and tests? Holy s**t, yes. However, it's satisfying to be here. I feel like I am gaining valuable information about how to conduct myself as an engineering. I am doing what I love.Within one and a quarter of a year, I have learned three computer programming languages, learned how to operate multiple programs such as CAD, PSpice, and Solidworks, I am about to sequence DNA in a class lab, I am helping to build a drone, and I have built my own board for electronics I was inspired to create on my own. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
