I really don't like BU at all. I consider it to be extremely over-priced given the quality of the school. I also found the "education" to be of very limited value. To be blunt my current job is actually a result of my previous job and is in no way related my experiences at BU.(And my previous job could be done by a high school graduate. I got that one by learning to interview well, not by my BU experiences.) I also believe BU caused me to experience a severe bout of depression.(Going from a B+/A- student to a C level student with no apparent avenue of help would do that to some, myself included.) As you can probably guess given all of this my opinion of BU is extremely low. Personally if I had it to do all over again I would go to UMass or some other school. I would definitely not go to BU. Nor would I go there for any graduate work and if I have any children I would never subject them to it either.
