BC accepts a great deal of AP and SAT II credits, exempt students from less interesting core classes and freeing space for electives. As with any college, class scheduling can be tricky, but there are numerous resources to help, from teacher advisers, to the Learning to Learn Center, and for freshmen, the Office of First Year Experience.

    I absolutely love Boston College and everything it has to offer. The academic prestige is challenging but rewarding and the campus activities are numerous and extremely fun. The campus is beautiful and the spirit on campus is felt from a mile away.

    Boston College is an ideal school. With a mid-sized undergraduate body of around 9000 students, ample major options, a beautiful and navigable campus, and wonderful and accessible professors, it was an easy decision to decide to go here. Nothing else can compare to BC's atmosphere and credentials; it feels like home, AND its education standards nearly match those of the Ivy League.

    I visited BC in April and the campus is beautiful and clean. Students seemed happy to be there and every person that passed me smiled. My tour guide was also very informative and he was only a freshman!

    BC is a great place to go to get a classic, New England education! The teachers, in my experience, have been very approachable and knowledgeable, and everyone on campus is quite helpful! The biggest drawback is the uniformity and exclusivity of some of the student body, but everyone can find their niche.

    Go to BC if you want to have fun but get a premium education. Professors and deans care about student education as much as health and having fun. Alumni connections and job prospects are incredible coming from Boston College.
