There are 16,000 undergraduates at BU. People are going to come to BU and realize that it was not the right choice. The ones that are not happy with their experience are more inclined to go vent on college review websites. Some of what is being written on this site about BU are true. BU is greedy? Tuition keeps going up year after year. No school spirit? Attendance to D1 games (except hockey) can be virtually non-existent. People here are stuck-up? Yes, with a school of 16,000…let me emphasize this again, 16,000…undergraduates, some WILL be snooty. Going into my junior year and having experienced it all at this school, here's the honest truth about BU: You are being prepared for the real world. I can't even list all of the opportunities that BU provides students because there are so many. Career development, undergraduate research, heck, BU have its own massive study abroad and internship program in twenty different countries. What BU is doing is providing the tools to advance your career and unfortunately there are people that never bother taking advantage of them. I keep emphasizing 16,000 because reviews on this site claim all the students are stuck-up and not friendly, which is absolutely not true because such a large student population brings so much diversity. For every person here that is arrogant, there are a dozen more that are kind, open-minded, and well-rounded. There are so many students and so many opportunities at BU and in Boston. If you don't want to be prepared for the real world and would rather live in some campus bubble cut off from reality, do not come here! With an acceptance rate of 32% that keeps dwindling year after year, there is a reason why so many want to come here: the city, the experience, and employers love BU grads.
