BU is a great school if your going to come here learn a few things graduate and move straight onto your career. If you have any plans of going to graduate school, however, this is not the place for you. I know it seems like the students here tend to bitch and moan a lot, but GRADE DEFLATION is real. My best friend had a 91 average in an astronomy class and her teacher told her that would translate to a C+ on her transcript. I went with her to her advisors office and his solution was to "drop the class". The administration doesn't give a damn about its students. Another one of my friends was told "if you don't like it, transfer", and I personally have had problems with housing, advising, and financial aid on numerous occasions. The institution only cares about money and nothing else. Honestly, coming to this school was the worst decision of my life. I love the friends I have made here and the social life is amazing but if presented with a choice now… I would have rather gone to community college.
