If you want to attend BU for the sake of having a fancy degree and wasting money, then I am confident you would have no second thought of coming here. If you actually want an education and to go through a period of personal growth(as typical colleges offer) please please please do not come here. I knew before coming here that BU would not provide me a typical college experience, but I did not brace myself for an education quality that is poorer than that of my mediocre public high school's. This is only my first semester here and I already feel like I have digressed academically. Classes deflate grades and it is not because the classes are rigorous. In fact, they're a joke, and this is evident in the low grades students receive because they are not taught the material. BU is purely corporate and will suck you dry from charging you to participate in community service to parent's weekend events. But if you choose to work out in the nice gym every day and become unproductive like the majority of students at this school feel free.
