Yea a lot of people like BC over BU and I'm wondering if that's because BC has a campus and BU really doesn't. It's a huge factor to many people, whether they admit it or not.
I mean what else could it be? Maybe the reputed "friendlier" atmosphere...?
I believe its the atmosphere. Both are very prestigious but BC has more lay prestige (in Boston.) BC has a very warm and inviting feel to it. The BU tower made me wince. However, BU does have some great students as well. Blindmelon is a great person who attends BU and posts on this forum. It really comes down to personal feel for most people. For me, BC is the winner.
I plan on living in the city and commuting via the T to BC.
