BU is a great place given that you like where you live. I had a miserable time freshman year living in a second-rate dorm on a floor where there was a some hostility (it was all female). This year, though, I live on a great floor in a nice dorm and I love it. Pray that you get placed on a good floor, or it will seriously hinder your social life.

Classes were always great for me, especially the upper-level ones where the information is less broad and more specific to my major. Professors, contrary to popular belief, generally want to help students and are easily available outside class. I have relationships with professors that I had last year that I still keep in touch with.

Come to BU if you're an independent person since this place is so vast. It's essential that you find your niche, be it athletics, academics, or even performing.

questionI just finished my freshman year at BU and I had a miserable time for the same reasons that you had a miserable time. If you don't mind me asking, what is the nice dorm you live in this year?
