BU brought out the best in me andBusiness - Management and Administration
BU brought out the best in me and gave me the confidence I needed to be successful in life. Knowing what I know now (12 years post-graduation), I would not change a thing. BU provided me the perfect balance of academics, leadership opportunities, professional development, friendship, character building, culture and big city life. 1996-2000 were truly the best years of my life. Anyone considering a large, urban school where they can meet people of all walks of life should seriously consider BU. All the pre-professional schools are strong, but you can also major in a liberal arts field and minor in some of the more specific areas such as business administration, engineering, communications or hospitality.

Question
Overall, the experience has been positive.BrightComputer Engineering
Overall, the experience has been positive. You definitely get out of it what you put in. There is so much to do in the city, numerous extracurricular activities, and many events on campus. If you throw yourself into the experience you will have a great time. There are some things that aren't for everyone such as the non-traditional campus layout, the lack of a BU community (overall its a love for Boston as a city and its sports teams rather than love for the school), and the grading can feel unfair you freshmen year where many kids have to deal with weed out classes. Overall, its a school I would recommend!
