What are your general comments?

"A good school, but not sure it's worth the money. Boston looks fabulous the first time you visit, but after living here a few years you can see through the gloss that BU tries to put on it in the interview day. It's expensive, crowded, cold, old, and segregated. Good school, but not sure the amount of debt you'll have when your done is worth it, though the dean went out of his way to convince us it is. A great school for some people." Report Response
