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!
