I am so proud to have graduated from BC and believe that their nursing program is among the best. Unfortunately, because of the wealthy nature of the students, they tend to feel entitled to every resource and advantage (on a silver platter) and complain quite a bit about what they get at BC. I would urge high school kids reading these comments to take care and really look for comments that seem intelligent and grounded. There are excellent people here if you are willing to look - I found a wonderful group of friends. Of course not everyone is great, but that is true anywhere. Academics are, in general, pretty superior. The social scene is well-rounded - there are outlets for the party-hardy's, the goody-goody's, and those in-between. BC is as good as any school, especially if you like a suburban environment with access to a great city and a Jesuit-based philosophy towards education. Good luck!
