There are 16,000 undergraduates at BU.Not so brightPublic Health
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.

Great Pre-Med! Prepare toQuite BrightPreMed and Medical
Great Pre-Med! Prepare to work harder than you have ever worked in your life. The Pre-Med program is more challenging than any graduate-level work you will encounter. For those still in high school, take as many AP classes as possible, volunteer and get involved in your school and community

I absolutely love BU! My time here hasAveragePublic Health
I absolutely love BU! My time here has been nothing but enjoyable and worthwhile. It is an incredibly diverse place to be and I have met the most amazing people not just across the country, but from around the world. I have had great professors who really care about their students and success. Though BU is a big school, you can make it feel really small if you get involved.

Boston is a beautiful and historical city with so much to do. The nightlife is 21+ friendly only and the T (train) shuts down early, which is unfortunate, but next year the T will run until 3am on the weekends so there's a plus. If you want to party, go to Allston or make friends with upperclassman that live in apartments. Going out will get expensive, however, so beware.

Every college at BU offers something unique, and with 250+ majors, you can study nearly anything. Also SMG is ranked 10th in the nation for business schools. Also, I personally am not in CGS, but I have a few friends that are, and they love the program. So take negativity with a grain of salt (that goes for all the other negative comments on here). If you come to BU undecided, you will end up finding your passion. And BU may be tough academically (grade deflation) but FYI, employers know how hard BU is (#1 hardest grading school in the COUNTRY), so don't feel like the world is ending if a grade isn't what you'd like it to be!If you love the city, want to become independent, want diversity, a huge student body and campus, and a degree that will be worth major $$$ in the future, BU just might be for you. If you don't want to work hard and establish yourself, then maybe look elsewhere. Make the most out of your education and the resources at your fingertips! You MUST have an open mind if you go to BU, and if you do, you won't regret it!
