There are alot of amazing oportunities at BU, but you have to do the leg work and find about them for yourself. Nothing is handed to you on a silver platter here and a lot of students who come from more sheltered privledged homes are put off by that, but I think it's one of the University's greatest strengths. You definitely graduate from here prepared to take care of yourself.

Also, I gave lower grades on academics than I would have otherwise because the survey asked specifically about the quality of your department. As an English major I wouldn't reccommend the English program as one of the University's strongest. But I'm minoring in Computer Science and despite its comparatively small size it's a well developed up and coming program that a lot of employers are impressed by. And BU has alot of other really strong programs, International Relations, Biology, and Management to name a few
