BC was my first choice. Everyone said I would love it and that it was the "perfect" school for me. BC is highschool extended for another 4 years…only with less diversity and more conservative and ignorant people!

The academics are a joke. My AP classes in high school were MUCH harder than the course load here. The professors are nice but kind of naive and not as intelligent as I had imagined they would be. No one is here to get an education; they are here to socialize and "experience" college. By that, they mean drinking beers in the dorms pretending they are in a frat (which BC doesn't have) and listening to top 40 hip hop. No one even ventures into Boston which is an awesome city!!!

I will be transferring to BU next semester. I cannot wait. I am just sorry I wasn't all this money at this low rate "university." If you take one thing from my comments… BC is not all it is cracked up to be. It is the most over-rated school in the Northeast!
