This school is more of a liberal arts school i feel. the engineering program is nothing to brag about, sure Biomed is strong here, but the rest of the programs feel uncared for.. the biomed eng. students have special classes, the rest don't. also BU places a strong emphasis on writing, their writing courses are probably the hardest in the country, and for engineers we are required to take writing up to wr150, so in average, eng. students are required to take a year of writing, not just normal writing, hardcore writing classes (that i dont think gives out As). I dont know why such high levels of writing would be required, especially for engineering.. so if u like writing but dont care ur grades for it(they hardly give out As, or at all), u'll like it here. For me(i hate writing), despite my As for my other subjects, my writing course dropped my contention from being a competitive transfer student.. so maybe i'll see u here… oh yeah.. class averages are very high too, say 75%~85%… so yeah… the community college feel in a huge private college… dont get me wrong, its a fun school, social is great, u can get drunk everyday of the week, or even change girl everyday.. u can find a lot of different people here, rich, smart, good looking, poor, stupid, butt-ugly.. but if ur serious about engineering, give BU a skip..
questionHi, so I'm considering Bio eng. and i know you said that if you serious about eng. to skip BU, but did you mean that for bio eng too? or just others?
responseIt's always interesting to read to about these statements. I have read a ton of articles about it on and I love them all. There is some attraction about them that i don’t understand and I want to.
