Wow, did I ever screw up. I am a transfer after spending two years at Boston Univerity's School of Management. The education at BU is LIGHT YEARS ahead of BC. The fact that national publications consider the schools similar academically blows my mind. As a Junior at BC last year, I was so far ahead of the other students, I was dragged down. Don't get me wrong, BC is not all bad. BC is more fun than BU. Most BU kids don't drink and they are WAY too serious about their studies. BC is about drinking and sports. BU is all business and academics. If I had to do it over again I wouldn't have chosen either school, but to leave BU after two years will cost me dearly over the years. Ironically, another HUGE advantage BU has over BC is its campus. I grew up in Boston and everyone always raved about BC's campus. You're stuck in freakin' Newton, man. And you see all those trees in the brochure-THEY DON'T EXIST! BC's campus is just buildings and parking lots. Want to see trees? Try walking down Bay State Road at BU where most students live. Bay State Road, which backs up to the Charles River and the Esplinade, may be the most attractive urban street in the US. BU has a pulse. And BU has a hockey team that actually wins Beanpots and NCAA Championships.

If you want a business degree and go to school in Boston consider 1-Babson 2-BU 3- Bentley (no shit) 4-BC… Also, consider NU…I just spoke to a headhunter who told me NU grads are in great demand…just after Babson and BU.

Hope this helps!
