BC is a bit rigorous on their courseworks, but it's possible to get As if you come to class and do your assignments. Comparing BC to Holy Cross, HC is very intense on academics. Boston College is a school that has the "competitor" reputation, but with less stress than other competitive private colleges. Students choose BC over other quality schools because they want some college life outside of academics. As a result you won't see as much cut throat competition for grades as you would at the more academically focused colleges.
