Overall I like BU. I just finished my Freshman year and I've found the majority of the people I've encountered in the faculty very helpful and at least informative, however I have had my share of less than wonderful professors. But everyone has, no matter where they go to school. Do not come to BU if you are looking for a campus. Seriously. If you want to be in the city, this is the place. I love the way Bu is laid out because you feel like you're living in the city as opposed to being fenced in from it. Classes are going to be more difficult than expected.ALWAYS. But sometimes this is just because it is hard to figure out how professors want things done. Some professors and many TAs don't speak a lot of english and that really sucks but they are usually relatively helpful in class and in office hours granted that a lot of time hours will be during times you have class and that's often difficult to get around. BU has its good points and down points. I like it but its not for everyone.
