BU is alright- I'm in Sargent and it is definitely harder than I thought it would be, and I am from on of the best high schools in my state. Its definitely different than most universities. They are strict on rules and that sucks. But I know that Sargent has a great reputation among employers. Almost everyone that I have talked to leaves BU with a job, and there are soo many chances to volunteer and get great experience that will look awesome for internship applications and job applications. I genuinely think that Sargent cares about its students, but I can't speak for all the schools. It seems like many of my friends get screwed by CAS. And grade deflation is definitely a problem. But I love BU, I met great people, have so many great memories, and tons of options in my education. Overall, if I had to choose again, I would choose BU.
