hey all! just came back from a visit to bu and thought i'd share! first impression -- not winning. i am from the nyc area and so when i imagined what bu might be like, i was expecting a fordham or nyu -- essentially in the center of all the action. so i was suprised to get off the t and see that it really did have more of a campus feel. i recognized the law tower immediately and, as many posters have mentioned, it's NOT the prettiest. however, after sitting in on a class, talking to some helpful students, and going on the tour, i was definitely won over. sure, the tower is a bit of an eyesore -- but it seems to have everything you'll need, and having everything in one building probably lends itself to getting to know your classmates much faster. i also preferred the location to bc's ... and of course, the reputation of the school speaks for itself
after this visit, bu is solidly in my top three!
