As with any large institution the sense of being an individual is often lost. Boston University always treats its students as nothing more than a number and a source of tuition money. In most cases and especially at the freshman/sophmore level classes are poorly taught and operated and in some extreme cases degrade your own intelligence.

Specific Comments:

  • The Writing Program is a joke and will most likely have a severly negative affect on own own writing abilities.
  • The Administration is lost in its own world of how to turn a profit without any concern on the sub par quality of education that the university provides.
  • Intro Biology and Biochemistry labs are completely useless.
  • In almost all cases academic advisors are not familiar with the program that they are a part of.
  • Always get transfer credit requests in writing because more often than not the university will screw you over on credits from other universitys without some form of proof of prior approval.
  • Summary: Essentially the value a Boston University Education is not worth the outrageously high price of tuition.

    commentUniversities are institutes for getting higher education and it is now compulsory for both men and women to be educated. The need of getting reviews on different subjects is so that a person can utilize his knowledge later in practical life and get success.
